As stewards of this building listed on the National Historic Register in 1999, we need your help as we embark on another historic preservation project. We are a nonprofit organization, committed to free public programming. This means that we depend on events like our house tour, membership dues, and generous donors for funding. Please support us through your membership and consider making a contribution to this project.
There are several capital projects that we are pursuing in 2016. We plan a multi-year approach to painting the Meetinghouse exterior, beginning this summer. Your gift of $100 -$1,000 will help refresh and protect this historic building.
The original windows are in serious need of reglazing and restoration. We are planning to install storm windows for now that will protect the windows. Storm windows can have the added benefit of protecting the exhibits inside the Meetinghouse as well as conserving heat. A gift of $3,000 will pay for a storm window and a gift of $2,000 will restore a window.
We are also adding air conditioning to the vestry and hall behind the Meetinghouse. Many items in our collection are found on display here and air conditioning will help to remove excess humidity to better preserve them. The air conditioning will be added onto the existing heating system.
Lastly, we have some massive sugar maples that need trimming and cabling so they don't break up and damage our rental cottage or the Meetinghouse. A gift of $25 -$500 will help care for these trees and protect our facilities.
Please join us on Sunday April 10 from 2-4, for our Spring Open House and discover this Harvard treasure firsthand. Please seek out myself or another board member if you have any questions.
We are also still accumulating funds for a historic restoration of our 1870 George Stevens pipe organ. It may be several years before we are ready to commit to having the work done but we are more that one third of the way toward reaching our goal.
Thank you for your interest and your support.
