Roseland Cottage

Preserving Collections

A Science and an Art

Worn water-spotted wooden desk with faded water-stained felt insert, large book with detached spine on desk.

When Historic New England purchased Roseland Cottage, the family donated the contents. Over the years many family members have found Roseland Cottage to be a trusted repository for more family treasures, confident that they will not only be shared with the public, but will also be extraordinarily cared for, and receive state of the art preservation, when necessary.
