In 2019 the Museum successfully secured funds to paint the exterior of the building and restore the two historic porches as well as paint the Carriage House. We also secured funding to complete a Cultural Landscape Report of the herb garden. It is hoped that by studying the herb garden area as well as the museum’s archives we can lay the groundwork for restoring this important interpretive feature of the Zadock Pratt Museum site.
Next, we will begin Phase II of our capital improvement plan. We hope to create a permanent exhibit focused on Zadock Pratt: The Man, The Town & The Nation on the Museum’s second floor. While we don’t yet have exact figures for this campaign, we expect it to be in the range of $250,000.
