New Milford Historical Society and Museum will be closed January and February for winter reorganization. There will not be tours during the first two months of the year. A team of volunteers will be working with the curator on housecleaning duties of the storage areas. The project will include the inventory of the hat and shoe collection. Properly cleaning, cataloging and re-housing the collection is aimed at creating better access and to promote preservation of the collection according to professional curatorial standards . Researchers can still make an appointment for access to the archives by calling the museum during regular business hours. The museum will reopen to the public with normal hours beginning March 5th.
