With Washington State's full reopening today, we wanted to give an update on the Polson's ongoing interior restoration project. We're still closed to the public but the end of our big job is within sight! Though we're not setting a reopening date yet, we are shooting for sometime in later August to open back up for the remainder of the year. We'll likely close again in early 2022 to complete our new permanent exhibits but in the meantime, the fully restored 1924 Polson mansion will be worth celebrating on its own with displays focusing on the house itself and all the recent work done during the COVID-19 shut downs. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards getting our doors back open this summer.
We are now finishing the final two bedrooms, a bathroom and hallway upstairs. Work here has been slow given the extensive ceiling repairs needed to remove historically-incorrect texturing done in the 1980s. That effort is nearly done and we'll be on to clean-up and final painting.
