State Senator obtains Economic Development Assistance Program grant to install handicap accessible elevator at the Blue Mountain Lake museum

Blue Mountain Lake, NY--Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) recently announced that he has secured $300,000 in state funding for the Adirondack Experience museum, which he helped cut the ribbon for its new “Life in the Adirondacks” exhibit in Blue Mountain Lake, New York in Hamilton County.

The grant that Tedisco obtained is through the state’s Economic Development Assistance Program and will be used to install a handicap accessible elevator at the museum.

The new 19,000 square foot “Life in the Adirondacks”  exhibit which opened this weekend is a fully immersive, interactive exploration of the Adirondack Park and its people.

“The Adirondack Experience is a fun, interactive and informative destination for families and people of all ages to visit that’s just a short day trip away.  I’m proud to help support making the Adirondack Experience museum even more accessible for people with disabilities so they can visit and enjoy this jewel in the 49th state Senate District,” said Tedisco.
