A historic building will now cement its place as a Binghamton landmark.

The Randall House, built nearly 200 years ago will now undergo a restoration project. Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham announced $100,000 in funding for structural repairs.

The building had been sold to the Roberson Center in the 1960s. After it is restored, the center plans to use the Randall House to host a sculpture exhibit.

"What we're doing is we're providing a new adaptive re-use of this historic building," Kraham said. "We're also saving it. Too often around Binghamton and other cities like it, not enough is done to save historic architecture -- and we know that we can't replace a building like this. It's history."

The Roberson Center hopes to begin renovating the building this spring.
