Restoration completed at Graycliff estate

DERBY, N.Y. (WIVB) – A historic estate in Derby looks a little more like its old self.

Several restoration and upgrade projects are complete to a home designed by the well-known architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Workers have restored the floors in the Isabelle R. Martin home at the Graycliff Conservancy.

Officials says its been roughly 80 years since the home has had wooden floors.

“During the 1930s while Graycliff was still owned by the Martin family, the living room floor collapsed due to the moisture in the basement. The Martin family replaced the wood floor with concrete plank floors.”

They’ve also installed a new fire suppression system, and made upgrades to the M&T visitor pavilion.
