There will be no pub­lic tours of the New Mil­ford His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and Mu­seum dur­ing Jan­uary and Feb­ru­ary for house keep­ing.

The cu­ra­tor and vol­un­teers will spend that time re­or­ga­niz­ing and in­ven­to­ry­ing the hat and shoe col­lec­tion. The goal of the pro­ject is to prop­erly clean, cat­a­log and re­house the col­lec­tion to cre­ate bet­ter ac­cess and pro­mote preser­va­tion ac­cord­ing to the pro­fes­sional cu­ra­to­rial stan­dards.

Re­searchers can still make an ap­point­ment to use the ar­chives by call­ing the mu­seum dur­ing reg­u­lar busi­ness hours. The mu­seum will re­open to the pub­lic with its nor­mal hours on March 5.

“The trustees and staff thank the pub­lic in ad­vance for their pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing dur­ing this tem­po­rary clos­ing,” ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Con­tact the New Mil­ford His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety for more in­for­ma­tion about up­com­ing events at 860-354-3069 or nmhis­tor­i­[email protected]
