Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, 75 Eastern Point Boulevard, Gloucester, Mass.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to maintain a house the size of Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House? This spring we are bringing our conservation work out from behind-the-scenes for you to see. During these pre-season tours, you might see staff clean the Amethyst Glass, hang 16-foot silk damask curtains in the China Trade Room, or install one of the windows that preservation carpenters restored over the winter. You will also discover the challenges conservators face when caring for historic buildings, including dust, light, pests, and at Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, the salt air.
