"The Rehabilitation of the Roosevelt Home at Sagamore Hill"
Sunday, April 12, 2015, 2:00 p.m.
Location: Community Church of East Williston
The Theodore Roosevelt home at Sagamore Hill has been closed to visitors the last three years while it has undergone a major rehabilitation; planning for the project began in 2011. Our speaker, Susan Sarna, is the Sagamore Hill museum curator who has been the on-site coordinator of the comprehensive interior and exterior rehabilitation and restoration. She will give an illustrated presentation on the planning and implementation of the project, including re-installation of the furnishings (18,000 historic artifacts!). The home is scheduled to reopen on July 13, 2015; this program will provide a fascinating behind the scenes look at the procedures involved in the rehabilitation.
(Further information about, and directions to this program, and a list of past programs and planned future programs is available on the Calendar page.)
