NORWALK, Conn. – The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk recently installed a handicapped-accessible ADA elevator in its building, according to a press release.

The new ADA elevator was unveiled during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday, May 20.

The museum received nearly $180,000 in state grants; both phases of the project cost about $800,000.

The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion was built in the 1860s, so until recently it did not have handicapped-accessible bathrooms nor did it have an elevator.
