Children's museum might have found a home

March 17, 2005

Mayor William M. Breichner announced Tuesday in his State of the City address that a children's educational museum that has long been looking for a permanent home in Hagerstown finally appears to have found one.

Discovery Station, which will house technical and scientific exhibits for children and teenagers, will be housed on the corner of Summit Avenue and West Washington Street in the Nicodemus building, which is owned by local developer Paul Crampton Jr.

Discovery Station has been looking for a permanent location for at least five years.

B. Marie Byers, who has been coordinating efforts to put the museum in a permanent location, said in a December interview that officials were working with the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore to bring exhibits, and the museum's board of directors is planning a financial campaign.
