The historic Chapin Mansion in Niles reopened after five months of renovation, now featuring a metal switchback ramp for the first time, to accommodate visitors with mobility limitations. The $275,000 project, funded through various grants and a local donation, also saw the restoration of the mansion's front porch and balcony. The renovation was spearheaded by city officials and executed by Kil Architecture and Mihm Enterprises, aligning with community interests in preserving historic sites and enhancing accessibility.
