A national park in Seneca Falls is in need of nearly $5 million in repairs.
The Seneca Falls Historical Society says the Women’s Rights National Historical Park has $4.6 million in backlogged repairs.
The organization says it wants Congress to approve funding for the fixes.
If the repairs are delayed, it says the costs will only rise in the long-run.
“The heart and soul of you community is its history, and the importance of maintaining the history and handing it down from generation to generation,” said Frances Barbieri of the Seneca Falls Historical Society.
Sites across the country have backlogged repairs, adding up to nearly $12 billion. More than $900 million of that total is due to New York.
