  1. Description
  2. Funding Schedule
  3. Progress
The Augusta Museum of History is requesting infrastructure funding in two phases: Phase 1) to stabilize an existing property (540 Reynolds Street) to the Museum`s current footprint (560 Reynolds Street), construct a hallway between the property to the building which currently is co-owned by the Museum and the city-county, install a freight elevator and to tie in HVAC, fire suppression, and electrical lines into these structure; Phase 2) the Museum`s current wood shop would move to the 540 Reynolds Street property which would create much needed exhibit space to enlarge both the Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown exhibition and the Local Legends exhibition. This project would also provide a more attractive streetscape for future economic development projects along and around the 600 and 500 blocks of Reynolds Street.
