Leroy Heritage Museum celebrates opening

by Joe Carreon - June 23, 2022

CANTON — A six year vision came to fruition on Sunday, June 5 when the Leroy Heritage Museum opened its doors to the public during a grand opening in front of a packed house.

Matt Carl spoke to the crowd to open the festivities and gave some background on what it took, to make the new location of the Leroy Heritage Museum possible.

“I remember being a young boy on the school bus, driving past this house and thinking it looked really neat, I always looked up at it when I went by,” said Carl.

The process of reacquiring the building started back in 2015 and since then renovations have taken place to transform it back for commercial use as a museum.

“This place is much more visible, you can see it from the road. It gave us more space and room for exhibits,” said Carl.

Cain Thompson , a representative of Endless Mountains Heritage Region took the podium next to reflect.

“It is so great to see this vision come to fruition. Matt has been great to work with and I look forward to working with him more in the future and preserving our counties rich history.” said Cain.

Also in attendance was Senator Gene Yaw who reflected on the importance of preserving our history.

“It’s critical to remember where we came from, It’s critical that our kids remember.” said Yaw.

Even though the Museum is now opened, it is safe to say it will never be finished.

Exhibits will be fluid and changing as pieces will be on a rotation.

The Museum will be open every Saturday from 1-4 p.m. or by appointment.
