The Museum is in the process of repairing and recaulking all of the historic windows at the Museum. The sashes are the original wooden ones and have not been modified with the addition of weather stripping or storm windows. This maintenance must be done every so many years; it is an ongoing expense of the Museum. However, we will be reducing our energy consumption and our carbon footprint. Eventually we plan to add storm windows, either inside or outside, while maintaining the integrity of the historic windows. This project was begun in May 2014 by Mark Mudgett & Sons and is on schedule to be completed by this May. The cost of this maintenance project is over $94,000, quite expensive. The Historic Preservation Trust of Vermont has provided a grant that has helped to offset the cost. Come see the new windows this June when the Museum will open for the 2015 season.
