How a Disaster Helped Reinterpret a Historic House:
Curator's Circle at the Shelton History Center

What happens to your historical society when the roof caves in?

Yeah, that really happened!

Shelton Historical Society embarked on a reinterpretation of their Brownson House more years ago than they would like to admit. The project plodded along as money, time, and contractors’ schedules permitted, while furnishings from the collection, lace curtains, and wallpaper were chosen and installed.

Then the storm came; pouring water all the way into their basement collections storage.

Join us at the Shelton History Center to find out how the historical society managed their way through this disastrous event, and how the house’s repair became the catalyst for completing the reinterpretation project at the Brownson House. It’s a riveting tale we’re happy to share!
