A Poughkeepsie, NY event space has announced they have been sold to new owners, who have huge plans for the space.

Back in 2019, the 175-year-old building located at 32 Cannon Street in the City of Poughkeepsie had seen better days. The building, which had been owned by the Freemasons was largely abandoned, leaving it in severe need of renovation. That's when a group of investors led by Jim and Gina Sullivan stepped in and began the rejuvenation of the once pristine building leading to the development of a brand new event space in the heart of Poughkeepsie.
