Mynderse Library, Seneca Falls, New York

[LIB0268] - A year later, the Library made the significant shift from being a tenant to owning its own building through the munificent gift of Wilhelmus Mynderse of New York, who purchased the Sidney L. Monroe house and property at 31 Fall Street for the then considerable sum of $4,250 and deeded it to the Association. Recorded in the Seneca County Book of Deeds No. 122, Page 319, the transfer took place Oct. 23, 1904, as extending from Fall St. north to the Dey Race south, bordered on the east by Trinity Episcopal Church and on the west by property of Mrs. Anna Lawless.
