Construction is underway!! (Building for the Future!)

The CHL Board of Trustees has been working with Daniel Frederick of Daniel Frederick Architects, LLC of Milan, OH finalizing design plans, reviewing bids, and approving project guidelines for the new museum addition which was unveiled at the annual membership meeting in April. In October, the Board accepted the project bid from Studer-Obringer, Inc. of New Washington, OH. Ground was broken in mid-November and construction has begun!

Plans have been on display at the Museum for some time and many have looked them over with great interest. They include a large meeting/display room, office, sales area, small kitchen, handicapped-accessible bathroom, and full basement for storage and work space. Design features include connecting the current garage annex, the historic church, and the new addition resulting in a museum complex with total handicapped accessibility.

The Board decided to close the Museum and “freshen” it up for a Grand Opening in the Spring of 2016 aligned with the opening of the new addition. During the winter months, much work will be accomplished to make the Clyde Museum better than ever.

The new addition has been made possible by the ongoing generosity of the Thaddeus B. Hurd Trust and others who have generously donated money to the League. The land for the addition became available at the end of 2013 and much planning has taken place to bring us to this point of ‘building for the future”!

It takes many hands and much money to create the best Museum possible. The

Trustees invite you to be a part of this project. We are accepting donations to the building project and ask you to consider a donation. You may wish to donate:

$50 - $100 - $500 or more. Your tax deductible gift assures that Clyde's proud history will be preserved for years to come; and provides a meeting place where that history can be shared.
