The Vintage Radio and Communications Museum of Connecticut said it has completed the purchase of a new 20,000-square-foot building in Windsor and is working for a reopening in the fall. RW readers will remember a front-page story about the museum's efforts to develop a new home several years ago.
Museum Director John Ellsworth stated, "After coming to Windsor in 2000 and purchasing a large industrial building in the town's center, we became bogged down in efforts to find a developer to partner with us in that building's restoration.
"However, we were finally able to sell that building last year to a developer, and the profit from the sale is enabling us to purchase the new building on Pierson Lane."
The museum said it is working with the town to finalize a state grant to fund building upgrades to allow the facility to meet occupancy codes. "We are anxious to finally open our doors after being closed for so long," Ellsworth stated.
