In 2016 Darryl Clarke, the owner of 3 Park Square, gifted his building to IVHS. This 950 square foot, 2-story building, built in 1881, is in need of extensive repairs. In order to secure the building so we can use it as our research and genealogical center, renovation is essential.

During Phase I we had the following work performed:
Replaced the roof
Repaired the flooring on second floor
Replaced broken windows
Installed new windows at the back
Built a partition between the front and back of the 2nd floor
Constructed proper stairs from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor
Added new ceiling and lighting, and
Upgraded the electrical.

This used up much of our funding. We are presently preparing for Phase II of the necessary renovations.

In order to get additional funding for Phases II and III, we need folks to go to our GoFundMe page and donate. ALL donations qualify for a tax-deduction when reporting your 2019 Income Taxes.

2nd Floor - May 2019

Phase 1 of the renovation has been completed. Photographs of the renovation progress will be published in the IVHS 2019 Summer Newsletter sent to members. Phase 2 will start soon.

We are accepting volunteers to help us paint the walls. To volunteer, please call (716) 676-2590 and let us know you are interested. This will help defray the cost of professional painters, as so much more needs to be done by our building contractor. Please encourage your friends, and other organizations to make a tax-deductible donation on our GoFundMe web page or send a check directly to IVHS, so we can keep the renovation moving forward. Thank you!

When 3 Park Square is finish, we will be able to move our vast resources into the newly renovated, climate-controlled facility. At that point, visitors will be welcome to make an appointment to do their research.

Extensive floor damage was caused by a previously leaking roof. The roof has been repaired, but some debri has fallen through to the 1st floor.
Looking from the front windows, which will be replaced, toward the back interior wall. This is where our major collections will be archived.
