Endicott and Broome County’s history is getting a boost thanks to a New York State Assembly capital grant.  $100,000 will be used to expand the Endicott History and Heritage Center on Washington Avenue including work on the second floor of the building.

Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo (D-Endwell) says the museum is in the heart of the neighborhood that once was home to Endicott Johnson and IBM, the most important companies in the entire region’s history.

The renovated second floor will hold EJ artifacts as well as a new historical library and renovated meeting and conference space.

The museum remains open during the renovations.  The facility is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday.
