June 1 through November 30, 2014

Imagine the early days of Raynham Hall Museum, when the building had just been saved from neglect and possible demolition by a group of determined and activist preservationists. That is the subject of our new exhibition, which explores the early stages of the Museum’s development and the group of (mostly) ladies who made it happen.  Visitors will see rarely exhibited early photographs of the building and of these remarkable women.
