Improving Humanities Collections Storage in the 1806 Gore Mansion

Consultation with a conservator to develop a plan for improving the storage of nearly 6,600 American, European, and Asian fine and decorative art objects in the Gore mansion, the residence and country estate of Christopher Gore (1758-1827), governor and later senator from Massachusetts.

This project is to develop a plan for the reorganization of the humanities collections storage area in the 1806 Gore mansion. The goal of the plan is to improve collection accessibility and care while increasing the storage space efficiency and capacity. This project is part of the long term collections conservation and care program at Gore Place and supports the highest priority recommendation of a Re-CAP survey completed in 2008.
