Raynham Hall Museum, Oyster Bay, NY

An aggressive fire in 1992 caused extensive smoke and water damage to this historic landmark built in 1738 and enlarged with a “Victorian” wing in the mid 1800’s. SOW included drying the structure with emphasis on salvaging the original wall coverings from the Victorian era and working alongside of the curator to ensure that the majority of the museum was restored using the appropriate materials and skills needed to preserve the artifacts that included furniture, clothing, porcelain china, books and valuable papers.
