There was a lot to celebrate on the morning of November 25th as we broke ground for the new building. Read the article here:
On Oct. 8th, 2019, Carl Bilski (on the left in the picture), president of the Brunswick Area Historical Society, accepted a check for $10,000 from Ken Cleveland, whose foundation donated the money toward the new building.
Thanks to Engelke Construction Services, with many Brunswick alumni on staff, who have taken over project management. Mike Vrsansky is our Project Manager.
The donation above and the state grant received through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission have allowed us to get the project started. But we still need to raise more money to cover the remainder of the costs including utility setup fees, finishing the interior and more. Continue below for past fund raisers and on the main page for current activities.
The event was held at the Diamond Event Center, 1480 Pearl Rd in Brunswick. The event was a great success and puts us a lot closer to our goal for the new building! Many thanks to Judy Galo and her team for all their hard work in the planning and execution of this event.
The museum restoration is complete, down to the beautiful golden exterior. New roof, new siding, new foundation and a new HVAC Unit make a safe and dry home for our community’s historical treasures.
It’s due to the hard work of numerous volunteers, donors and contractors who went above and beyond that we were able to reopen during the community’s 200th birthday celebration.
The new barn roof was installed and and a fresh coat of barn red now covers the entire structure!
Work is being done to reorganize the office space on the second floor of the museum, and many new items are on display during the museum open hours!
