The Village of Penn Yan has seen a lot of successes over the last two years.
They won the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative contest in 2018; and several grant wins have come along since. One such win is the Preserve New York grant, which will allow the Village of Penn Yan to hire Bero Architecture of Rochester to complete a comprehensive building condition report to determine the causes and severity of maintenance issues at the Oliver House Museum, according to The Chronicle-Express.
This report will give local officials and the Yates County Historical Society an opportunity to understand where opportunities exist to rehabilitate and continue growing the historic venue.
The Oliver House is a brick Italianate building, which was constructed in 1852 by Dr. Andrew Oliver.
