RE: 1812 Lundy's Lane Historical Museum expansion update
- Congratulations! Those are good design choices.
From: Kevin Windsor
I am pleased to be able to announce a few bits of good news related to the
Lundy's Lane Historical Museum expansion:
At last night's city council meeting, the Board announced four major donors
for the project:
1 - The Gale Family have made a significant donation and they will be our
major donor with naming rights for the 1812 Visitors Centre
2 - The Niagara Falls Hydro Holding Company has made a donation for the
naming rights to the events courtyard and covered walkway
3 - The West family, in memory of General and Christine West have made a
donation for the naming rights to the "stairwell gallery"
4 - The Main and Ferry BIA has also made a donation to the project
In addition to this, Council approved the recommendation of staff to retain
Moriyama and Teshima as our architects for this project. Moriyama and
Teshima are very well known Canadian architects whose best known museum
project is the design of the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. They will be
working with Lord Cultural Resource Management and Borgal Heritage
Consultants on the Museum project.
Construction should begin January or February of next year.
A big thank you to all for your support and also a reminder that it is still
not too late to make a donation...one time or monthly pledges are welcome
and a tax receipt will be issued for donations. Email kwindsor (at)
niagarafalls (dot) ca for more details.
