Chandler House Renovation Updates
Restoring the Chandler House
The Currier Museum of Art is renovating the George Byron Chandler House, an architectural treasure from the late 19th century that sits across the street from the museum. The main floor of the house preserves impressive stained glass windows, original wallpaper, and fine wood carving. These areas will be open the public as an expansion of the museum, specifically to represent New Hampshire in the 19th century.
We need your help to renovate this beautiful home to its original glory. The Currier Museum of Art aims to raise over $2 million dollars in order to support the work ahead, and also develop an endowment for future upkeep and maintenance, public access, outreach, and education programs. Help us save this historically and architecturally significant building for generations to come by making your gift today.
We will update this page as progress continues. Please check back often for updates and follow us on Facebook and Instagram @CurrierMuseum. We appreciate your support!
This cheery fellow, and the decorative foliage surrounding him, is from the top of the south chimney. The upper three feet of the chimney were dangerously unstable and were dismantled by the preservation masons. The terracotta sculptures are in good condition and will be reinstalled as the chimney top is reconstructed. Want to get involved? Make your gift today!
You may have noticed that preservation masons have begun work on the Chandler house. The beautiful chimneys are being repaired and repointed and the crumbling north east wall is being reconstructed to protect them from another harsh New Hampshire winter.
Restoring the Chandler House is a huge project and we need your help! You can support our Chandler House Restoration project by making your gift today.
