The Hanover Area Historical Society is currently organizing the collection and preparing the carriage house as a museum, said Warehime-Myers Mansion manager Jim Schuman. The museum does not have a set open date.

In addition to historical restorations in the carriage house, workers added new light fixtures, a restroom and handicap accessibility.
