Another chance for new life at the Circus House at 161 S. Main St. in the Village of Homer could prove to be successful. Currently, the Village of Homer will be hosting a public hearing on Thursday, October 6th at 5:30pm at the Homer Town Hall, 31 N. Main St. in the Village.
The Village plans to submit an application to New York State to be granted funding to restore the building under the Restore NY Round 6 funding program.
The funding request, which will not exceed $1 million dollars, is planned to be submitted around October 11th.
The Circus House was originally built in 1901 as a training site for the Sig Sautelle’s Circus. Over the years though, the building has deteriorated and desperate repairs are needed to preserve the historic building.
