      Seneca Knitting Mill getting remake as Women's Hall of Fame

      The old, and empty, Seneca Knitting Mill is getting a new 'job' as the home for the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls

      The National Women's Hall of Fame is headed to a new home, in an old and empty knitting mill in the heart of Seneca Falls.

      The much larger 'home' will allow for more displays on women's progress, and board member Eileen Hartmann says it will also let the organization do more work to ensure equality for women--pay equity is a major concern right now.

      The renovation will get underway, officially, with a ribbon cutting on May 7th. The $25-million dollar project has gotten grants from Seneca Falls, from Finger Lakes Regional Development, and from the Federal Government, as well as corporate and financial donations. It's expected to add jobs to the area and boost tourism as well.
