Moffatt-Ladd House and Garden Collections Storage

Funding supports the purchase of storage cabinets and consultation with a conservator who will advise the museum on the care of ceramics, archaeological artifacts, early 19th-century floor cloths, and paper-based materials in the collection. The 1763 National Landmark Moffatt-Ladd House opened as a house museum in 1912 and teaches visitors about local, state, and regional history through the lives and possessions of the home's residents during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Moffatt-Ladd House and Garden, a National Historic Landmark owned and operated by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of New Hampshire, seeks $6,000 to assist with the purchase and installation of three museum flat files. These storage cabinets will be used to store small ceramics, archaeological fragments, nautical charts, and our comprehensive collection of early floor cloth fragments. The cabinets will be installed in the collections study and storage room that is part of the newly constructed storage lean-to of our restored 18th century Warehouse, which can withstand the weight of cases that cannot be housed in our historic structures. The humidity-controlled collections storage room has been designed in consultation with conservator Marc Williams, who will continue to work with us on the rehousing of collections being stored in this area, as a sealed environment safe for the storage of collections of all types.
