There are a number of options from stands to restaurants for lunch in the area. You will also have the opportunity of touring the Naval Park if you like. The cost is $6.00 if there is a group of 10 or $8.00 if you go individually. Or if you prefer, you can spend time enjoying Canal Side and the waterfront.

At 7:00 PM we will have a Special Fund Raiser in the Ballroom of the Miner's Cabin. Daryl Clark, from Ellicottville, graciously donated his building at 3 Park Square to IVHS. This helped us solve our problem with lack of space for our growing collections. We were able to move all the items from the third floor ballroom in the Miner's Cabin to our new building. The funds raised will help us to begin restoring the ballroom for events.

The event will be held upstairs in the old ballroom. The most common request over the past years was to go up to see the third floor. Now the public will be able to do so. Tickets will be $10 for the general public and $5.00 for IVHS Members whose dues are current. This will help us refinish the floor, do various repairs, and decorate. We hope to add a small bathroom.

Simeon Robbins had wonderful parties and balls on the third floor. For years, Ten Broeck Academy held their proms there too. We hope to open the ballroom to more public events and venues.

Refreshments will be served and the program will be about the adventurers from Franklinville who went to the Yukon to search for gold. Simeon Robbins was the most successful member of the group and his gold mine helped to build the Miner's Cabin. Tickets will go on sale in July and can be purchased by calling 716-676-4018 or 716-353-0290.
