The Historic Valentown Museum in Victor will be getting an updated porch soon after receiving a new metal roof last year.
Kathryn White, president of the Victor Historical Society, says the goal is to get the building to where it once was.
The building was originally a homestead for Levi and Alanson Valentine and in 1879 they began building it into a shopping plaza for the community.
The basement was used for taking care of horses with the higher floors used as stores. The kitchen in the building worked similarly to a modern day food court.
The building eventually became a place for rallies to be held for WWII and was used for storage.
