Massachusetts Historical Commission Grant!
June 22, 2016

We have been notified that our grant application to the Massachusetts Historical Commission's Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund was approved!  See more

THE STORY:

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.

For more information about the campaign or to adopt a specific window, visit salemathenaeum.net/windows or contact: Jean Marie Procious, Executive Director, at 978.744.2540 or info@salemathenaeum.net.
