Renovation Season

This winter we have moved our renovation projects to the first floor of The Alice to a space that will be noticeably changed to every visitor of the museum, whether they have come for tours or events. We are putting the finishing touches on the first floor hall soon! Here are some before photos along with current photos of the new wall color. With the help of our volunteers everything has been taken from the main hall and the south hall to clear the space to work. We then removed the old 1960s wallpaper and Steve has been working his magic with paint.

The work should be done by April when we are open by appointment. Hope you enjoy the photos... Once the collection items are back in their proper places this will be a most welcoming entree into The Alice.
