DeRiggi-Whitton Secures $6,500 Hotel-Motel Grant for North Shore Historical Museum in Glen Cove

(GLEN COVE, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D – Glen Cove) thanked her colleagues in the Legislature for voting unanimously on Monday, Dec. 18 to approve a $6,500 Hotel-Motel Occupancy Tax Fund grant for the North Shore Historical Museum in Glen Cove.

The funds will be applied toward ongoing renovations of the circa-1907 Justices Court Building which houses the museum. To date, 38 of the building’s 60 storm windows have been renovated in accordance with historic preservation standards; the new grant will equip the Museum to complete another five to six of the remaining windows, which will be equipped with a special film on the glass to protect the museum’s collections and exhibits. The Courthouse is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places.

The Museum’s mission is to preserve the history of the North Shore of Long Island through the stewardship of its collections and historic structure to engage the public, and to interpret the history of the North Shore, in particular the area once known as the “Gold Coast”, through exhibitions, lectures, and programs.

“Growing up as the daughter of a local historian I understand the true value of having a location to display and preserve important artifacts. The leaders of the North Shore Historical Museum have been outstanding caretakers of the Justices Building, and this ongoing project is emblematic of their devotion to preserving our historic treasures and educating the public,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton said. “It was a pleasure to work with them to secure these funds and I thank my colleagues for their unanimous support.”
