As you may or may not know, the dining room at the Hill House Museum has been undergoing restoration which started in January 2017 and has been very expensive. On examination the Rosewood knife boxes will have to be professionally restored. Susan Hansen (Board Member) originally obtained an estimate five years ago from Monticello Antiques but the price of restoration has gone up ($575 a box). We are asking if you would consider contributing money towards the restoration to assist in defraying the cost to the Museum. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to contribute or have questions. Thank you in advance for considering this appeal.
