The McLean County Museum of History is moving ahead with their construction projects.
Candace Summers with the McLean County Museum of History indicates the museum has chosen to remain closed so it can expedite some much-needed facility updates. The modernization of the public restrooms is currently underway.
Another project that was approved by the board is updating the historic lighting fixtures. Summers says they will be rewired to handle modern bulbs and restored to their original color. The museum also found the rest of the original fixtures which will be added to the rest of the museum.
In addition to work inside the building, the museum will also be getting a new roof courtesy the County of McLean. Summers notes her excitement for when the public will be welcomed back.
