With Phase 4 beginning, museums are allowed to open with restrictions. We are currently making preparations to re-open the museum to the public on Sunday, August 2nd. We will limit the number of guests who may be in the building at any one time and will require the use of facemasks inside the building. We will also have a “No Touch” policy within the building. If you plan to visit us, you may need to ring the door bell and wait for a docent to let you in.
Please watch our Facebook page and website for the latest information or give us a call at 225-7221.
Archival Storage Show & Tell by Kate Jacus
When: Saturday, August 1st, 10:00 a.m. (weather permitting) Where: Back yard of the Greece Museum, 595 Long Pond Rd
Get a close up look at various storage options for your family heirlooms, from photo-graphs to newspaper clippings, books to textiles. We’ll talk a little about the science behind “archival-quality” and then show you various boxes, binders, and enclosures and how to safely pack objects. We’ll have plenty of time for questions so you’ll leave with storage recommendations for your own collection.
This program will be outside in the shade of our back yard. Please bring your own lawn chair and a mask. Social distancing will be maintained and hand sanitizer and plastic gloves will be available if you wish to touch any of the storage options.
Kate Jacus is the marketing coordinator at Archival Methods, a local manufacturer and supplier of archival storage and presentation products. She is also the founder of The Photo Curator, LLC, and a certified professional photo organizer helping families and businesses manage their photo and heirloom collections. She was our guest at the June 9th Zoom presentation.
2020 Census Exhibit
The Greece Historical Society had planned to host a traveling exhibit in April about the 2020 Census. The exhibit coordinated by the Rochester Regional Library Council consisted of four banners measuring 78″ x 33″. Because we are closed, the best we can do is show you what they would have looked like.
