August 6, 2018 |  by

I received this from Barb Russ at the Eric Sloane Museum:


In preparation for our celebration of a half century showcasing the life of Eric Sloane through his superb collection of  early American tools, his painting and illustrations, his prolific writings, and his artists’ studio,  the Eric Sloane Museum will be closing for the season on Monday September 3rd. Starting in October, the museum  will be undergoing structural repairs and upgrades to secure the building and improve the visitor experience for the next half century. The museum will remain open during regular museum hours (Friday-Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm) through Sunday September 2. Visitors are still welcome to explore the grounds of the museum and see the remains of the Kent Iron Furnace which produced iron during the nineteenth century, and is a featured industrial site on the Connecticut Iron Trail. The remaining events will take place as scheduled including learning how to split shingles with several members of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum on Friday, August 10th, from 11 to 3.

The shingling events with the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum will continue as scheduled:

Friday, August 10th from 11-3

Friday, September 7th from 11-3

Saturday, September 29th from 11-3

We’d love for you to join us.  We’ll provide the training and snacks.
