Mesquite, TX - August 4, 2017 - Have you suddenly found yourself with a wealth of family heirlooms or just have your grandmother’s wedding dress hanging around? Would you like to find out the best and most economical way to preserve your artifacts without ordering fancy packing materials?
Historic Mesquite, Inc. will host a Preservation Primer Workshop, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on August 26 at the Noah Range Farmhouse, located in the Opal Lawrence Historical Park.
For $10 a person, Collections Manager Kelly Baird will discuss the best practices for packing and keeping your family heirlooms preserved for your children or grandchildren, especially textiles, photos, papers and books. Because the Range Farmhouse has limited space, the workshop will be limited to 25 guests.
August 26 is the usual Fourth Saturday open house at Lawrence Park, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Those who sign up for the workshop will be able to take a tour of the Stephen Decatur Lawrence home free between 10 and 11 a.m.
Call the Historic Mesquite office at 972-216-6468 soon to reserve a spot.
