Description

Join Old York Collections Manager, Peggy Wishart, for a special behind-the-scenes tour of object storage at our new Research Center at Beech Ridge. View objects rarely seen by the public and hear details about a selection of Peggy’s favorites. Learn how staff moved more than 20,000 objects, ranging from fragile baskets and glassware to oil paintings, tall clocks, and large signs. Peggy also will explain the careful—and often complicated—process of organizing objects in storage.
