Physical improvements to the Museum Farmstead – Winter 2021 update

with No Comments

Thanks to the grant from the Preservation Massachusetts 1772 Foundation, and matched by the generous donations to our “Save the Windows” campaign, our four porch windows, and the Dutch Wagon House dormer, eave, and transom unit have been restored, reconditioned, and installed at the Museum.

Due to the great work of our contractor Scott Morrison, we’ve upgraded the second floor windows of the main house and are about to fully enclose the Wagon House. Scott was even able to save the original 1700’s Wagon House door and incorporate it so it’ll be fully visible from the interior of the building.

Last but certainly not least, the 3-hole privy got a new floor.
