Genesee Country Village & Museum awarded a Preserve NY grant

September 21, 2018 11:34 AM | Becky Wehle

Ten groups in Cayuga, Livingston, Monroe and Ontario Counties have secured grants totaling more than $71,000 from Preserve New York, including Genesee Country Village & Museum. The museum was given a grant of $7,560 to have an intensive-level Cultural Resource Survey of our site conducted by Blake Held, A.I.A. He will be photographing many of the buildings in the Historic Village, sifting through our archives, and ultimately creating a report based on National Park Service standards that we will hopefully use as the basis for a future nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.

 Preserve New York is a signature grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Preservation League of New York State, and is made possible with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

The Museum Association of New York strengthens the capacity of New York State’s cultural community by supporting professional standards and organizational development. We provide advocacy, training, and networking opportunities so that museums and museum professionals may better serve their missions and communities.

Museum Association of New York is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.
