Visitors to Old Fort Niagara will see a new building that actually, by design, pays homage to the destination’s past.
State officials have opened the $2.7 million brick-and-stone masonry bathhouse, located next to the fort’s swimming pool.
Rose Harvey, commissioner of the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, said the bathhouse was designed to mimic the 1700s architecture and design among the 250-acre Town of Youngstown destination.
The bathhouse is one of several upgrades made to Old Fort Niagara including new boat docks due to open by the Fourth of July holiday. The docks are the only public boat docks between Lewiston and Wilson.
Scrufari Construction was the general contractor while the bathhouse was designed by HHL Architects, Frey Electric handled the electrical work and Clean Water Mechanical handled the mechanical work.
