And finally, our community members now have online access to a secure, anonymous form to disclose any troubling activity on or around AHA property. We call this Silent Witness and it can be found here.

Historic King’s Way Renovation – Collaborative adaptive reuse of an historic rowhouse with the Albany County Historical Association, owners and operators of the Ten Broeck Mansion. AHA will own and rehabilitate the building and grounds beginning in 2009 and leave the property to ACHA for use as a gift store, gallery space, office and storage, as well as a caretaker unit. The property will be connected to the Mansion grounds by a footpath. The project is intended as a cultural anchor at the north end of North Swan Street and provide higher visibility and greater community access to the Ten Broeck Mansion.
