A New Building

Talk had gone beyond merely opening the old building to construction of a new building, complete with a full-size gym and a 54,000-gallon heated pool. In April of 1938, the project was approved. A year and a half later, the new building was dedicated, with Cyrus Russell as its first director. Lincoln Center Community Association had not only survived the Depression, but it also planned and constructed a building that was one of only two of its kind, for a town Troy’s size, in America.
