JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — A historical monument in Johnson City is being re-purposed.
The nearly century old Endicott-Johnson Pump House Pagoda in C. Fred Johnson Park was renovated.
The $125,000 project is started last year in an effort to transform the building into a small-scale museum.
Historians say the project will allow future generations to understand the building’s past.
“To have this beautiful landmark preserved for our village for another 90 years, to have this special place in our hearts for so many of us, and we’re going to be able share it with our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren,” said Historian for the Village of Johnson City Janet Ottman.
The restoration efforts were lead by Assembly Woman Donna Lupardo with the help of Johnson City Mayor Greg Deemie and volunteers.
