Massachusetts Historical Commission Grant!

BENEFITING: PROPRIETORS OF THE SALEM ATHENAEUM
We plan to engage experts to do a thorough restoration of each of our historic windows, including:
- Chip and remove loose, flaking glazing putty
- Replace broken panes and sash cords
- Repair any rot, weak joints, and surface damage
- Remove paint, repaint, clean, wax, and re-install
- Fabricate storm windows
Per window restoration costs range from $650 to $4,500. As funding is raised, the work on each window will take between a day and three weeks, depending on condition. The total cost of the project is up to $70,000 and we have received a matching grant of $35,000 from the Massachusetts Historical Commission's Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund.
To support the window project and adopt a window, please donate here or create your own Crowdrise fundraiser.
