Manchester Historical Museum Fund

2014-2015 Appeal

The Manchester Historical Museum needs more than dues to maintain

the historic Trask House, collection and archives that bring Manchester history to life!

This year your donations will help to:

*Paint the exterior of the Trask House
*Reglaze and paint the exterior of the windows
*Purchase additional high-quality lighting for our art collection
*Acquire additional items for our collection
*Offer a hands-on mentoring program for Manchester-Essex H.S. students

Last year your donations allowed the MHM to:

*Install new UV reducing storm windows
*Purchase high-quality picture lighting
*Continue our summer exhibits
*Present our first-ever fall solo art exhibition
*Introduce new children’s hands-on history programs
*Expand our school programs to include older grades


Preserving Every Old Window in the Trask House.  This includes removing deteriorating ultraviolet film on the windows, repairing and painting all the mullions, adding new air-tight interior storm windows to protect the windows using a product recommended by Historic New England, adding ultraviolet protection for preservation of the building’s interior and its artifacts. Though this project was almost mostly funded by the Manchester Community Preservation Act, your donations helped with some extra steps that came up during the process.

High Quality Picture Lighting for the Art Collection.  Many patrons have generously donated or loaned the Manchester Historical Museum beautiful artwork that needs to be showcased with proper lighting.  With correct lighting, visitors may appreciate the high quality of the art. Electrical outlets have been installed and new lighting fixtures installed on many of our paintings. This project was completely funded by our generous donors to our annual appeal. Thank you!
