The Library and Archive will preserve and build upon a vast wealth of knowledge which we are at risk of losing. Thousands of rare and vintage books, periodicals, artworks, recipes, studies, and videos pertaining to Standardbred poultry will be protected and expanded upon.
The Meeting Hall will be a welcoming and functional multi-purpose revenue-generating area. It will be used to greet and feed visitors, screen films, and host everything from corporate events to weddings and conventions.
