Closing to the public in early January does not mean that we sit idle. We work right through winter here at The Gables, just like Jack Frost! This public closure affords us the time to accomplish a wide range of projects to prepare for the coming year. Some of the tasks that we will complete include a deep cleaning of our public spaces and the care of our historic collections.
As technology and research progress, so do the best practices for caring for our history. To keep up with the current museum practice, we will be implementing the latest methods as we shine the silver, buff the brass, and make the glass gleam! You can see for yourself how we did when we re-open on January 13.
