Museum news: new ceiling being installed, new writers wanted

16 Aug

The Webster Museum is getting a new ceiling, which means it’s been having to close for a few days to get the work completed. This week, the museum will be closed on Thursday, but will reopen on Saturday for its regular hours of 2 to 4:30 p.m.

In other news, a call has been put out for writers who would be interested in helping complete updates to Esther Dunn’s Webster Though the Years book.

For the last several years, a small band of writers has been working to update the volume, which was originally pubilshed in 1970. Much of the work has been completed, but a few chapters remain and the group would love to have a few more hands to help get it across the finish line.

The volunteer position offers:

  • a personable, friendly and supportive group of researchers and writers and other volunteers
  • access to the museum’s written and electronic resources
  • assistance with computer issues and research as needed
  • colleagues proofread each other’s work
  • (best of all) no deadlines

There’s a link on the museum website to some of the work, so you can get a taste of what’s been completed. It will eventually also include extensive biographies of Webster personages and early history studies.

If you’re interested in helping out and sharing your love for Webster history, write to Kathy at and she’ll get back in touch.
