We got a tour behind
the walls of the Ex-Hacienda and parts of the old sugar mill
that are being restored with the help of the University of
Colima. In a rent exchange program along with funding for
the restoration, the University will use the large building for
conferences and classes. When ready the new area
will be part of the larger museum complex.
Most of the work is
being done to the large building below that was converted from
sugar in the '50's to a plant producing essence of lemons.
Before that the history it's not known. Emilia, who is
part of the original family that owned the Hacienda and current
manager, gave us this tour and she has hopes this new section
will be open in about a year.
