The North Shore Historical Museum will host its “Open the Doors” sunset cocktail party at the Sea Cliff Yacht Club, Thursday, Sept. 8 from 6 – 9 p.m.
The Museum recently announced the completion of its restoration of the exterior of Glen Cove’s historic Justice’ Court Building, the Museum’s future home. The “Open the Doors" party will celebrate the work now being done to complete restoration of the interior of the building.
“This party will celebrate the work that has already been accomplished on the building’s interior restoration," said museum President Brian Mercadante. "However, we do have a way to go before we can finally 'open the doors' to the public for this magnificent building. We recently announced a $125,000 Capital Projects Grant that will certainly help us to reach that goal, but we continue to need the support of the public and local businesses. There is no doubt that when completed this Museum will be a must see destination bringing many visitors to Glen Cove.”
