THANK YOU to those who baked cookies for the cookie walk!
THANK YOU To those who volunteered!
Phippsburg Historical Society continues to offer valuable services in preserving the town of Phippsburg's rich history. We are getting more and more requests from a diverse group of people to open the museum during the winter so visitors may come in and do research. We also are finding that leaving the room where our archives are housed unheated, is taking a toll on delicate photos and documents.
We have directed our fund raising campaign this year towards making a climate controlled space so the museum could be used year round, and help preserve precious documents and photographs. Thanks to our fundraising we were able to install a brand new HVAC climate control system in the research library and we hope for more to come. We also had a new door added to the research library as well as a new alarm system. Thanks to our fundraising efforts we are able to look forward to the future and know that the security of our documents will be safe for years to come. We are working on organizing the artifacts in the research room in brand new color coded binders for different classifications. Future fundraising efforts for 2018 will include climate control for the entire main building.
