Glebe House Receives 1772 Foundation Grant

Woodbury, CT — The 1772 Foundation in cooperation with Preservation Connecticut has awarded the Glebe House Museum a Connecticut Historic Preservation Matching Grant in the amount of $10,000, to assist the organization with the replacement of the Glebe House (c1750) roof. This program is a collaborative historic preservation technical assistance program of Preservation Connecticut and the 1772 Foundation.



 

Visitors at the Museum & Garden may have noticed the tarps covering the historic Glebe House roof. These were placed on the building in late 2023 to protect the structure from water damage over the winter months.  The 2024 season opened with a flurry of fundraising initiatives by the Seabury Society for the Preservation of the Glebe House, Inc.; the official name of the non-profit entity that is responsible for the care and maintenance of the historic site. Funds to match the 1772 Foundation Award and complete the project were raised through the generosity of many donors in the local community. Residents and visitors of Woodbury’s historic Hollow Road will see the project completed this summer.



 

 “As we celebrate our 99th year, we remain committed to preserving our beautiful historic site, finding new and exciting ways to connect with our community and provide engaging experiences for our visitors.

Through this funding we will complete a project that protects the structure of the Glebe House and the unique collection contained within, ensuring its survival for future generations.

This important funding has put our goal within reach and we are grateful for the support.” – LoriAnn Witte, Director

 

This grant was administered by the 1772 Foundation in cooperation with Preservation Connecticut.
