Wall collapses at Iron Island Museum

Volunteers at the Iron Island Museum in Buffalo escaped injury Sunday when a brick wall collapsed.

About eight workers were at the museum when a wall collapsed for the second time in less than 10 years. Another wall collapsed in 2005.

Museum President Linda J. Hastreiter said the previous repairs cost about $15,000 so she’s assuming the cost for this round of repairs will be at least that much.

Located at 998 Lovejoy St., the museum is dedicated to preserving the neighborhood’s history and has become an attraction for fans of the paranormal.
