Campaign funds have allowed us to enhance our presence on Newbury Street with a beautiful and welcoming garden and the restorative cleaning of our building’s façade. Inside the building, campaign funds have enabled us to create an expanded conservation laboratory. We are currently seeking additional campaign gifts and grants to restore and replace the inefficient windows and doors facing Newbury Street; to replace our aging heating, ventilating and air-conditioning system; and to upgrade the technology infrastructure (i.e., computers, reader-scanners, wireless connectivity, and content management systems that will support a unparalleled surge in the number of online records available to our members and registered users).
Despite these recent and planned improvements, NEHGS was still burdened with an inadequate amount of space for expanding our staff and services. With this in mind, NEHGS seized a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and entered into an agreement to purchase and ultimately expand our headquarters with the adjoining four story, 4500+ square foot brownstone townhouse at 97 Newbury Street. Our extended sale agreement, in which the seller will maintain his retail operation for the foreseeable future, allows NEHGS the time to gather donor support for this critical acquisition and its eventual renovation, and also to plan carefully and strategically for how this new space can best be configured to meet the requirements of the Society and its members.
*Donors of $100,000 or more by the end of December 2014 will be recognized as Founders of the Cornerstone Society and will be listed on a permanent plaque placed within the building.
