Adirondack Museum (Blue Mountain Lake, NY 12812-0099)
Doreen Alessi-Holmes (Project Director: December 2017 to January 2022)
Enhanced Environmental Conditions for Humanities Exhibitions

Replacement of outdated environmental control systems in the Adirondack Historical Association’s 1969 “Life in the Adirondacks” building, whose exhibitions and collections explore early settlements; extractive industries such as logging and mining; the birth of tourism based on nature and recreation; early environmental conservation movements; and the Native American experience from pre-contact through the 21st century. The project would install energy-efficient equipment including air handlers, chillers, a new boiler, particulate filtration, and an emergency generator.

The Adirondack Historical Association (DBA Adirondack Experience) requests $350,000 to replace the HVAC systems serving its 45,000 square foot Life in the Adirondacks (LITA) building. The existing systems are in danger of failure and are unable to maintain a consistent environment to fully protect the artifacts on display in the building. The new systems would allow the organization to present new and more dynamic humanities exhibitions, in addition to helping preserve the institution's unique collections for generations to come.
