Planning for the renovation of an archives storage facility in the historic Sanborn House to better preserve the Town of Winchester's historical collections of maps, photographs, publications, artifacts, and legal and genealogical records.

The Town of Winchester requests $35,000 to plan a storage facility for its consolidated historical collections. Project funds would be used to engage a team of experts in the fields of conservation, architecture, archival practice, and engineering to work with the Town of Winchester's Head of Engineering, Town Clerk, Historical Commission, and the Executive Director of the Historical Society to develop plans and specifications for a storage facility on the ground floor of the Sanborn House, a National Register building currently being restored as a cultural and historical center with funding from the Massachusetts Historical Commission, foundations, and private donors. The planning process would focus on a review of collections and calculation of their storage needs, analysis of environmental data for the Sanborn House, review of the building envelope and its capacity for passive and active measures to provide a storage environment that is energy- and cost-efficient.
