Pulling Together: Covid19 news

Pull Together

Despite being closed to the Public, the Old Stone House Museum’s Staff and Board are working hard behind the scenes. Not so long ago, we all gathered in one place to move the Grammar School. Now we’re working to pull the community together remotely. Currently, we plan to open on May 15, but will be following public health guidelines to inform our season’s plans. Stay updated about some of the wonderful programs we’ve planned for our 2020 season. Should we not be able to open our doors, many of the talks and programs will be available on NEKTV or online. Stay tuned!

Pull together with us by becoming an OSHM member now. While we may not be able to move mountains, we’ve proved we can move a building. Be part of a team that can have a positive effect on our community during these historic times!

Go on a Field Trip!

Are you looking for a great virtual field trip for your kids at home? We invite you to enjoy a virtual tour of our museum right from the comfort of your own home.
And even if we need to maintain social distance, we hope folks will walk the grounds this spring. Enjoy our garden, orchard and berry patch produce harvested by our AmeriCorps volunteers.
Come and enjoy the outdoor beauty our spaces have to offer!

This is an historic time.
Record your experience.

Now is a historic time in world history. As the county’s historical society, we want to encourage people to record their experiences in such an unprecedented moment. Send photographic images or written accounts to curator@oldstonehousemuseum.org.
The Vermont Folklife Center’s Listening in Place Sound Archive is currently accepting photographic images and audio recordings here.

Finding Ways to Help Others

The Old Stone House Museum continues to be an essential presence in the community. During this time, we have stepped up to help further.

  • We’ve asked our community volunteers to sew and contribute cloth masks. The OSHM will accept cloth masks for delivery made according to these instructions issued by Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center here. Please drop off at back entrance of Twilight House in a resealable plastic bag or contact your local hospital about their specific needs and instructions about how to contribute directly to them.
  • Should it become needed for medical staff to conduct off-site testing for the corona virus, the OSHM Grammar School has been added to a list of triage buildings for North Country Hospital.
  • In Collaboration with the NEK Collaborative and other NEK partners, we have compiled a number of resource centers to help our community find the help they need.
