Stone House Wins Grant
The Stone House is the recipient of a SHRAB (State Historical Records Advisory Board) to preserve our wonderful collection of World War I posters. Up until now, the posters have been folded or rolled and kept in boxes. With $934, and the volunteer labor of the museum committee (Nancy Bell, Shirley Bock, Amy Moran, Florrine Neggers and Randi Shenkman), and our museum’s archivist (Cliff McCarthy), each poster will be placed into a clear archival sleeve to keep the paper from degrading.
Properly preserving these posters will enable the Museum to create a special World War I exhibit in time for the 100th anniversary of the U. S. entry into the ‘War to End All Wars”.
