Shelburne Museum (Shelburne, VT 05482-0010)
Chip Stulen (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
Shelburne Museum Stagecoach Inn Renovation Project

An implementation project to preserve the Shelburne Museum's renowned folk-art collection, housed in the 1783 Stagecoach Inn. To protect the collections, the museum would improve environmental conditions, security, fire suppression, and lighting in the historic structure.

Shelburne Museum requests a $243,880 Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to stabilize and protect its folk art collection, housed in Stagecoach Inn, an important historic structure. Renovations in Stagecoach Inn will result in a reduction of energy use while also maintaining current levels of environmental control. Greater consistency of lighting control will be established throughout the building and light levels will be reduced on the second floor following the installation of visitor activated light sensors. Objects installed on both pedestals and mounted on walls will experience less vibration and have better support, and the collection will receive improved security thanks to an increase in camera coverage and upgrades to the VESDA system. Consequently, the project will also result in better protection and presentation of the Museum’s important and renowned folk art collection.
