These are the costs that keep the Richardson-Bates House Museum alive. However, much of the work is done “backstage”—processing a backlog of donations, after the completion of our new Collections Management Policy; replacement of electrical wiring that dated as far back as 1920; and much needed management of plumbing/heating systems.
Thanks to your financial support last year, some much needed grants, and the work done by our wonderful volunteers, we have been able to complete the following “backstage” projects:
As our donors, you know that you are not only helping maintain the Richardson-Bates House Museum, but also preserving thousands of rare documents and photos that are part of the collections housed here. If only 180 people donate $100, we can meet our goal of $18,380.
Thank you so much for your continued generosity!
