With the pending sale of the Isaac Pollack House, the Museum will have one last swan song day on Sunday, August 1, from noon until 2pm. Old and new volunteers as well as curious members of the public are welcome to take photos, trade storie, and visit friends one last time before the Museum turns the house over to its new owners.
The Museum has owned the 1877 mansion since 2005 and is moving to 10 South Ludlow St, directly on Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton in the late fall of this year. Demolition and construction have begun on the former US Bank site overlooking the large fountain on the square. Volunteers have begun the massive task of sorting and moving items from Monument Street to storage underneath the Ludlow Street building.
Board member, Jacob Bauer helps to move nearly 2,000 books from the Museum’s library into storage in preparation for the move from Monument Avenue to Ludlow St. this summer.
Museum Operations Director, Greg Humphrey leads the massive project of moving us from A to B. Greg is looking for volunteers from sorting to boxing and moving items. The Museum is almost entirely volunteer-run.
