Renovations Update at Schoharie Crossing

We wanted to share these images of the work being done inside the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center.

These are from a couple weeks ago but you can see the progress being made from our last update.  The floor has been covered to protect it as work continues.  Since these photos were taken: painting has been done and molding, as well as new baseboard heating casements, light fixtures, and switches installed.  Fixtures in the bathrooms have also been installed – along with a real snazzy wainscoting. 

As you can see, the first floor layout has changed dramatically.  We will welcome guests with a new traffic pattern, as well as a new exhibit and visitor experience.  The space is scheduled to re-open with the art exhibit Views & Vistas: the Natural and Build Environment of Schoharie Crossing on July 8th during our annual Canal Days weekend.  In September, installation and opening of our new Erie Canal exhibit will occur.  More details soon on that!

Thank you to everyone in the Friends group, NYS Parks, Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, and NYS Council on the Humanities for their work, their funds and their inspirational participation on this project!

Hope you can join us at several of our terrific events and programs scheduled for the 2017 season.  Follow us on Facebook and check out our NYS Parks Page for the most up to date information.
