The Hearthstone Historic House Museum has announced its “Shine Even Brighter” capital campaign with a goal of raising a minimum of $500,000 with an initial $100,000 matching donation. 

The money will fund a long overdue restoration of the exterior of the 137-year-old museum building that is on the national and state historic registers as a significant technological and artistic treasure. 

“The end result will be an exterior that matches the breathtaking interior of our museum,” said George Schroeder, Executive Director.

Artisans will begin the restoration this summer with work on the house’s massive, corbelled chimneys and installation of a new roof. Other work will include restoration of the copper ridge caps, other metal detailing, exterior wood and brick surfaces and historic windows. 

The formal announcement of the “Shine Even Brighter” campaign will coincide with Hearthstone’s annual dinner and meeting on March 19th at the Fox Club at Fox Cities Stadium.
