Albany -- What may look like graffiti on a historic downtown Albany building is actually a sign that a renovation project is in the works.

The Bridge House will be the new home of the Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau Welcome Center. The architects have gone through and marked the building where changes will be made.It's to help give prospective bidders an idea of the work that will be done.

The new welcome center will have state of the art technology with touch screen computers that allow visitors to book accomodations and buy tickets to area attractions.

"It's going to be a whole lot more than just a welcoming center where you can buy some cokes, get some water, and get some brochures. It will have state of the art equipment that will really showcase what we have in this area, that people can visit and experience," said Tommy Chatmon.

Former slave and Horace King designed and built the Bridge House in 1858. It was the place where a toll taker collected money from those crossing the Flint River on the bridge.
