December 31: A House of Boxes

Today is our last day of our Festival of Trees Holiday Event. Nineteen rooms in the historic house were decorated floor-to-ceiling for the holiday season. We now have five workdays to have the rooms undecorated, packed, stored, and protected.

In our efforts to protect the intact collections and household furnishings of Pearl S. Buck, the contents of entire rooms will be packed in tissue paper, bubble wrap and archival boxes. Each box and its contents will be entered into an inventory system for reinstallation and retrieval. Seven rooms will be packed and two rooms covered for protection through Phase II. This nine-room preparation will take about 167 work hours.
