May, 2015

The WHMA is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a recipient of an "Excellence in Cultural Heritage" award from the Lowell Whistler House Museum of ArtNational Historical Park and the Lowell Heritage Partnership for the "historic preservation paired with strategic modernization" of the historic home, especially the kitchen project.  The award cites the WHMA as a "notable model for good sustainability and preservation practices."  

The kitchen was a late 1850s addition to the original house, built in 1823, and has been furnished with a period soapstone sink and a cast-iron stove retrofitted with gas and electric. Along with the reclaimed wormy chestnut flooring, an antique cupboard and icebox complete the room. 

The beautifully restored room is open for viewing during regular WHMA hours.
