[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Guilderland 5-2-1995. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Town of Guilderland is the owner of the property, and through the Curator extends permission to residents of the Town of Guilderland to use the Mynderse-Frederick House for meetings and noncommercial functions. Selected groups are authorized to hold their regular meetings at the house, and all who use it are guests of the town. The building, dating from 1802, stands as a historic reminder of what once was in the Town of Guilderland. Its use as an inn during the early 1800's played a major role in our local history. Because of the effort to preserve our history of that time period, nothing is to be permanently displayed in the house without prior permission of the Curator.
There are certain rules that all must follow when using this house:
No smoking is allowed anywhere in the house.
This house requires extra care. Each group is responsible for the house and its contents while using it and will be billed for necessary repairs. No spike heels are allowed.
Nothing is to be hung on the walls without permission of the Town Historian.
Do not lean folding chairs against the walls. There is a cart in the back room to store unused chairs.
No cooking is allowed on site, but light refreshments are allowed.
Maid service is not provided. Users must leave the house in the condition they found it. All refuse from a user's event must be removed when the user leaves. There is a broom, dustpan and vacuum cleaner in the back room for the user's convenience. An additional charge will be incurred if cleaning is necessary after a user leaves.
No more than 50 people are allowed.
All items left shall become the property of the Town of Guilderland.
Those not following to the above policy will be denied use of the premises.
If, however, we all use common sense and adhere to the rules, the town will continue to grant access to the Mynderse-Frederick House and share this historical time period with our residents.
