Recently due to Covid-19 we were unable to open our museum for the year 2020. That meant no flea markets, no holiday boutique, and no visitors, which also meant virtually no donations. Keeping our historic museum maintained relies heavily on the money we accumulate through these events annually.
As a way to compensate, we are excited to announce that we will be running an online auction. We have an abundance of wonderful donated items stored away for the purpose of reselling thanks to our very generous visitors, friends, and staff members, as well as through various local estates. This auction will help us to sell those items, while acquiring the much needed funding for the ongoing maintenance of Sherwood House. The house needs a new shingle roof, work on the clapboard siding, and interior restoration. We estimate the cost for repairs could be up to $150, 000, so your help is desperately needed.
The auction will be held from May 15 to May 21, 2021. You can participate at your leisure. The link has been added just below on this page for your convenience.
