The Haverkamp Huis (Havercamp House) in Clymer, N.Y., recently received a grant from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation to build a barn on the property, located at 358 Clymer-Corry Road.

The barn, which is currently under construction, will be used to display several large pieces of Clymer memorabilia.

Items will include a one-horse open sleigh built in Clymer in the mid 1800s by Cornwell, Colton and King, along with several business signs, farm equipment and tools.

Eventually, the barn will also be used for educational purposes with emphasis on early agricultural history of the community.

The Haverkemp Huis is an 1880s restored brick farmhouse that serves as Clymer’s museum.

Visitors may tour the building on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. for the rest of August with an historical society member.

Visitors may also view photo and scrapbook collections, as well as other items of interest.

For more information on the Haverkemp Huis, call (716) 355-9950.
