SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Two rooms from a historic home in an upstate New York community known for its 19th-century architecture have been given a makeover at the downstate museum where they've been on display for 60 years.

Officials at the Brooklyn Museum say the parlor and library of the Colonel Robert J. Milligan House in Saratoga Springs have been conserved and refurbished for the first time since the two rooms were installed in 1953. The museum purchased the rooms and their furnishings in 1940.

The project included restoration and installation of the parlor's original chandelier and adding several Victorian furnishings original to the rooms but not previously on view at the museum. The project was completed last Friday.

The Milligan House was completed in 1856 and is still standing on Saratoga's Circular Street.
