Two Binghamton, New York Buildings Nominated For Historic Places Register
Earlier this month, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced 27 nominations for State and National Registers of Historic Places. It included a sheltered workshop in Binghamton that promotes the general welfare of people with different abilities.
By adding these sites, their heritage would be preserved and would better help the building's owners get help in revitalizing the properties by making them eligible for various programs and services. This includes matching state grants along with state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.
Southern Tier Properties Nominated For State Registers Of Historic Places
Sheltered Workshop for the Disabled Building - This building was originally built in 1947. They provided vocational training, employment medical care for Broome County residents that lived with physical and mental disabilities.
It was built in three distinct sections that supported the office, clinical and manufacturing programs. The workshop also incorporated a rare example of Streamlined Moderne factory architecture in the city of Binghamton.
Cameo Theatre - This small movie theater on the East Side of Binghamton was built in 1928. This is the only small-scale neighborhood venue of its kind to survive in Binghamton.
The good news is that it is in the early stages of rehabilitation into a functional arts space. The theater had a restrained modern aesthetic favored by local architect Gerald G Schenck and Binghamton master architect Sanford O Lacey.
These properties join a Delaware County property that was nominated for the register in June 2022.
Max and Johanna Fleischmann House - This Delaware County property is the only house that is left out of the six summer "cottages" used by the Fleischmann. The house was built in 1886 and is now known as Spillian.
It was an example of a Gilded Age summer "cottage" in the Stick and Shingle style.
