Mather House Museum Complex Tour

Saturday, October 21, 2017
2:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Port Jefferson, NY

or call us at 631-692-4664.

Join us for a tour of the Historical Society of Greater Port Jefferson’s Mather House Museum Complex with curator Laura Warren. We’ll take a special look at the museum’s new Archive Building and delve into the facility’s planning, design, and realization.

Designed after the style of a 19th-century ice house, the Archive Building reflects the historic character of the surrounding neighborhood while providing environmentally controlled storage space for collections. The Historical Society received a grant from NYS Senator Kenneth P. LaValle in 2008 to support the facility’s construction and worked diligently to raise additional funding. Once completed, Steve Czarniecki of All Museum Services was hired to advise the Historical Society on collections care and management at their new Archive Building.

If your historical society is considering an archival storage upgrade, then you won’t want to miss this great event!
