River Mill Museum is committed to restoring the former International Paper
Company office building at 17 Pine Street and repurposing it to serve as a
museum that will interpret the development of the pulp and paper industry in the
southern Adirondacks and celebrate 133 years of paper manufacturing in Corinth.
The Museum asks for your support to help it restore the walkway from the sidewalk on Pine Street to the steps that leads to the main entrance of the building with the use of commemorative bricks inscribed with the names of your family members and loved ones who once worked at the Hudson River Mill.
The proceeds from Phase I of the brick purchase program will be used to initiate the plans for the building's restoration and to develop the Museum's initial exhibit which we plan to open in the summer of 2020.
Individual inscribed bricks will cost $100.00. Donors will also have the option to obtain a donor certificate for $10.00. Phase I of the brick purchase program will run from June 15 to September 1, 2019. The dedication of the walkway will be held on Columbus Day weekend. Bricks purchased during Phase I will be installed in the walkway leading to the front entrance of the building.
Bricks purchased in Phase I will only honor individual Hudson River Mill workers. Since each brick offers three (3) lines of texts with 18 characters on each line, we ask that donors order bricks inscribed in the following way:
FIRST LINE - the persons name
SECOND LINE - the working dates (if known) or their retirement date
THIRD LINE - occupation, job title or where they worked in the mill (if known)
Donors may order bricks with only the name inscribed. or date or occupation. All three lines do not have to be completed.
