Preservation and Presentation of the History Museum


Preserve History…by supporting the North Tonawanda History Museum;

        Make History…by helping us to buy our new home; Become History…Have your name on a part of the Lumber City History Center!


        The North Tonawanda History Museum has been raising funds for the purchase and renovation of 54-60 Webster Street, which it wishes to turn into a state-of-the-art Welcome Center and the Museum’s permanent home with their "Buy a Brick" campaign.  The "bricks" are actually 8x8" quarry tile stone, 1/2" thick, and will be mounted permanently on the interior walls of the Lumber City History Center.


        You may buy an engraved stone tile for a donation  of $100 per individual, $250 for a family, and $500 for a business. Non-profits and clubs and community organizations may purchase a brick for $100. The proceeds will go into the special fund for the new building, where all the bricks and tiles will be permanently displayed for future generations to see and admire.

Bricks can be engraved with up to 5 lines of up to 18 characters per line.  Honor a loved one or an organization, or just show your support for the North Tonawanda History Museum and its dedication to the “Future Of Our Past.”  You may purchase a brick in honor of or in memory of individuals or families.


Orders may be paid for by cash, check, or by Master Card or Visa .


Danielle Oney, Museum Vice President and Chair of the Buy a Brick Committee, notes, "The response to date has been overwhelming.  Members of families are purchasing bricks in honor of individuals from their families, groups are showing their support, and many individuals from all over the country have already participated."


Samples of already purchased tiles will be on display at 54 Webster during the North Tonawanda History Museum's participation in Winter Walk on December 6.
