Jennie’s House – Marion Museum
On April 10, 2017; Leslie Adriaansen presented a very generous check to the Town of Marion in the amount of $15,000. It was donated specifically to be used to upgrade the outdated and insufficient electrical system in the Marion Museum, known as “Jennie’s House” on South Main Street in the hamlet. The funds will also cover the cost of re-plumbing the building. Shown in the photo below, is Town Supervisor Monica Deyo accepting the check from Mr. Adriaansen, as well as both Councilman Ron Lonneville (the Town Board liaison for the project) and Town Historian Caryn Devlin observing the presentation. The Town is very grateful to Mr. Adriaansen for his generosity and desire to help Marion move closer to the goal of completing the renovation of our museum.
