Exelon Generation's R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant awarded a $3,160 grant to the Town of Ontario Historical and Landmark Preservation Society to replace the roof on the Baptist Meeting House at Heritage Square Museum, which is located about a mile from the plant, in Ontario, N.Y. Each year, more than a thousand students tour the facility, which includes a 1874 train station, Civil War era log cabin and 150-year-old school house.
"We are fortunate to have the Heritage Square Museum in Ontario," said Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Site Vice President, Bill Carsky. "Exelon Generation is glad to help preserve this historical building for generations of visitors."
The Baptist Meeting House was built in 1834. It was donated and moved to the Heritage Square Museum in 1974 and is part of the 13-acre museum, which is open to the public on weekends from June 1 to October 7 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m.
