The current holdings of the Society include the Vera Estey House, which preserves an entire home and its contents from the early to mid 1900's. Vera Estey willed the home to the Society with an endowment fund to help with upkeep and ongoing preservation projects at the site. Many preservation projects have been completed due to the hard work of past members, and currently the members are restoring the grounds, including a period perennial garden. This was a most generous gift from Ms. Estey, but the terms of the agreement do not allow for any non-original modifications to the building or land. This does not allow for future expansion or additions to the collections in the home.
The Estey House is one of 1800 museums across America offering free admission to all military personnel and families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. For more information on the Blue Star Museum Program, visit www.arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
