The Tioga Heritage Park and Museum is currently closed. In 2014, the state hired Meyer, Meyer, Lacroix and Hixson Engineers to do a structural analysis of the main building. The study revealed that the building is not structurally sound and not safe for use. The last meeting of the board was in 2016.
