Art Gallery flooring was from the Collett Orphanage in
northern Vermillion County, pictured here before its demolition
It was noted by members who helped in the 1985 remodeling that friends of the Gallery and members found flooring available at the old "Collett Orphanage" located north of the Cayuga power plant. This building was being torn down so friends of the Gallery, Bart Dooley, Bob Sciotto and Chuck Wagoner were able to remove the flooring and reuse it in our main floor. We are forever grateful for their hours of work to repurpose this flooring for us! It remains one of our treasured historic features from original or era appropriate architecture along with the metal ceiling and entry light pendant!
Our Thanks again, Bart, Bob, and Chuck!
