Parking is being made available by our good friends at Headless Horseman Hayrides, who will be letting us use their lot. Our parking area is very small and will be reserved for the handicap on that day. We are asking those with mobility issues to be dropped off if possible. Arrangements for some kind of valet-parking implementation is being considered to make the most of the space available. We will keep you posted on this!

Dear Friends,

We would like you all to be informed of some minor changes being made to the way we communicate with all of you!

First, please take note that our general contact email is changing FROM [email protected] TO [email protected]

This change is already in place. However, there will be a grace period of ONE YEAR that the old address will still receive messages so that everyone has time to adjust to the transition. We don't want to lose any of you. After that time the old email address will be shut down and will no longer receive any messages.

Please be aware that this does NOT affect any requests you may ask us here directly on Facebook OR the website platform.

ALSO, we are attempting to streamline our information out there on the internet. We are aware of one or two old websites with broken links that we used in the past--we are still trying to get rid of them. Please make note that the only TRUE website we have, and intend to keep is www.esopushistorymuseum.org

If you do a Google search, that should be the very first link you get.
The second one http://www.klyneesopusmuseum.us/ is the one we are trying to REMOVE. You will also find our page, and then some external links to articles about us from other sources.

If you use a different browser, you might also see multiple listings of the http://www.klyneesopusmuseum.us/ that are different page links of that old website. Again, we are working to eliminate this.

We value all of your continual interest and support in the museum and we strive to keep you informed of any changes that will affect how we serve and communicate with you. Please make note of these changes so we can continue to do so.

Thank you!

Sincerely,

Zemar G. Gonzalez
