This museum doesn’t open until September, but we got a sneak peek and decided to share it with you. The museum has been in the works in one stage or another for nearly ten years. Through a generous grant from the Meredith Foundation, the museum has gained new life and is nearly completed.
Anyone who was raised in Mineola or anyone who is a history buff is sure to love the museum. It is chocked full of displays, re-creations and photos from Mineola’s colorful history. The people who put this museum together have spent literally thousands of hours working on it.
As you watch the video, keep in mind that this is a sneak peek and the museum is still a work in progress.
The museum will be free and open to the public but will accept donations. It will also act as the Tourist and Information Center.
