New Opportunities

Summer 2015

The beloved Norway maple in front of the Kneeland-Walker House, likely planted 125 years ago when the house was built, must be removed for safety reasons.
Please help us to offset the $3,500 cost of cutting down the old tree and replacing it with an Autumn Blaze maple.

Raise the Roof Campaign

In May 2010, leaks in the 60-year-old roof of the Kneeland-Walker House made their way to the second and first floor of the house, threatening the integrity of the WHS collections and archives.
The cost of replacing the roofs of the Kneeland-Walker House and Coach House in a manner consistent with their original style (including cedar shingles and copper flashings and gutters) is $152,000. This will help us to ensure the longevity of the buildings and the collections they house, but does not include interior repairs to damage from the initial leaks.
