The next phase of the Butler Museum restoration is slated to being soon, NorthJersey.com reported.
The work should take about three months, the website reporter.
The museum was founded 125 years ago.
The work, which is being done in phases, entails repairing and replacing the building’s siding, windows, and roof. It will also be repainted to make it appear how it looked in the early 1900s.
A $181,000 grant from the Morris Count Historic Preservation Trust Fund is financing the work. Replacing railroad ties and creating a new concrete foundation is part of the work plan, museum Chairwoman Peggy Spranzani previously said.
Artifacts and exhibit displays remain in storage while the work continues.
Spranzani wants to hold a special grand opening in October to celebrate the museum’s 125th anniversary.
