The Award of Merit is for the sympathetic rehabilitation of an historic building or structure in our nine-county region completed within the past two years.
Bath House – Hamlin Beach State Park Lake Ontario State Parkway, Town of Hamlin, Monroe County
Built of Medina sandstone in 1939-40 by members of the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps, the bathhouse has undergone a complete renovation to protect its historic integrity and modernize its public spaces. The $1.5 million project included repairing the historic masonry and replacing the roof to re-establish the building’s historic appearance. In addition to mechanical and interior upgrades, the exterior areas of the facility were renovated with new stamped concrete walkways, an ADA-compliant ramp, new landscaping and outdoor shower towers. This project was coordinated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, with F.W.Construction Co. of Rochester, general contractor.
