Funding supports the development of a plan for the storage of collections in Nichols House, an 1804 brick townhouse attributed to architect Charles Bulfinch. Ninety percent of the museum's household furnishings, decorative and fine arts, textiles, and archives are original to the Nichols family, who lived in the house from 1885 to 1960.

The Nichols House Museum (NHM) proposes to retain Julie Solz, Team Leader for Collection Services at Historic New England, as a project consultant in the design and implementation of a comprehensive collections storage plan which offers short and long-term solutions for caring of the NHM collection. The museum is requesting $5,320 to fund Ms. Solz's work. The amount requested also includes the purchase of chrome wire shelving units to properly store objects now in storage.
