Statement by County Executive Andy Spano:
These documents have been in Westchester County for more than 84 years. If the Thomas Paine Museum is no longer suited to house these valuable transcripts, then it is only fitting that the Westchester County Historical Society be selected as the repository for them.
The Museum and its collections have historical connections to Westchester County. They’ve been here all these year and they should remain here.
