Work moving ahead on Hungarian museum
ALBANY, La. — The first segment of work to set up the Hungarian Settlement Historical Museum is complete and work is proceeding on the next phase.
Alex Kropog of Holden, president of the Hungarian Settlement Historical Society, tells The Advocate the initial work focused on the interior of the 75-year-old former school building that will house memorabilia of the cultural influence of Livingston Parish's Hungarian population.
The second phase includes installing a restroom, a small office, a meeting room and additional exhibit space, Kropog said.
Kropog said he hopes to open the museum later this year or in early 2013. The museum will rely heavily on donations and grants to complete the work.
