The Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore recently received a $15,000 grant from the Belvedere Fund Historic Preservation Grants Program of the Maine Community Foundation in cooperation with the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. “This grant will help to restore up to twelve historic windows in the 1867 Washburn family mansion. The windows are located in the ell portion of the estate which houses the original kitchen and a caretaker’s apartment”, said Sheri Leahan, Norlands’ director. The project consists of repairing sashes, re-glazing, replacing historic glass, refurbishing hardware such as locks, weights and pulleys, and painting. “We’re not only thrilled that these historic windows will be saved for many more years, but that also they will be made more energy efficient with new weather-stripping,” commented Jane Frost, President of Washburn-Norlands Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
