Adirondack community businesses to work with local museums to grow history tourism

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau, a division of the North Country Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to announce the launch of their newest program, Adopt-An-Attraction. In 2015, the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau revisited the Clinton County Destination Master Plan. This plan outlines goals to grow the lake region destination, helping to draw visitors to the area, staying in local lodging properties and discovering area attractions. During the planning process history was identified as a core strength. Growing the areas heritage tourism with unique visitor experiences, will create a need for visitors to extend their stay. The Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau knows how vital it is that we as a community work with local history museums and attractions to help the area continue to develop as a world class destination. Since budgets are small for a variety of these museums and attractions, to grow heritage tourism the Visitors Bureau has created a program called “Adopt-an-Attraction”, a goal outlined in the Destination Master Plan.How does Adopt-an-Attraction WorkLocal businesses were given a list of participating non-profit attractions to develop a partnership with and help complete projects to enhance their offerings. To launch the program the Plattsburgh Kiwanis Breakfast Club chose to partner with the Lyon Mountain Mining and Railroad Museum. The Lyon Mountain Mining and Railroad Museum, dedicated to depicting the histories of the Lyon Mountain Iron Mines and the Chateaugay Branch of the D&H Railroad, then provided the Plattsburgh Kiwanis Breakfast Club with a list of projects they wished to have completed. After reviewing the list, the Plattsburgh Kiwanis Breakfast Club didn’t waste any time getting started and has since been up at the museum working to provide a new coat of paint for the building. Ann Kent, Treasurer of the Plattsburgh Kiwanis Breakfast Club, stated “When the Plattsburgh Kiwanis Breakfast Club heard of an opportunity to partner with the Lyon Mountain Mining and Railroad Museum our club members were immediately on board.  The members are excited to be able to assist the museum with projects that are not only supportive of our local history but have the added benefit of being fun and promote fellowship within our group.  If any other organizations or businesses in the area are looking for a way to help some of our struggling museums I whole heartedly endorse the Adopt-an-Attraction Program.  All it takes is a little time.”Jane Kelting, from the Lyon Mountain Mining and Railroad Museum, stated “The Adopt an Attraction program has benefitted the Lyon Mountain Mining and Railroad Museum. Members of the Plattsburgh Morning Kiwanis Club spent several days painting the outside trim and window frames of the RR Station that houses our museum. We are very grateful for the work that they did and wish to thank them as well as the Chamber, and look forward to our partnership growing.”The Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau is still looking for businesses and non-profit attractions wanting to participate in the Adopt-an-Attraction program.
