GOHS Albert E Morris Award to Chip Klugo
The Greater Oneonta Historical Society’s Board of Trustees has chosen Charles (Chip) Klugo to receive GOHS’ thirteenth annual Albert E Morris History Award. The 2014 award will be presented during a reception at the History Center, 183 Main Street on Sunday afternoon October 26 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.
GOHS Executive Director states that “The City of Oneonta and Otsego County Economic Development worked hard to save the Bresee’s Oneonta Department Store building, a fixture on Main Street for more than 100 years. Until Chip Klugo of Corning became the developer of the property, the end result was in question. Klugo and his team have been sensitive to the building’s history, restoring its Main Street façade, retaining several interior features, and highlighting the building’s history with interior displays. Klugo also purchased 1 Dietz Street and has outfitted it with upscale apartments. The adaptive reuse for retail and apartments of both buildings contributes to the revitalization of downtown Oneonta, while preserving the downtown streetscape.”
All are invited to the free reception in Klugo’s honor. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact[email protected] or 432-0960.
