Lockwood-Mathews receives grant

The May WAG includes a story about the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk. In keeping with the issue’s “Celebrating Spring” theme, we paid a call to this National Historic Landmark to spotlight its refurbished conservatory.

And what we found was a charmingly inviting space given new life through a thoughtful restoration project. The elegant conservatory adds another layer to the popular tours of the mansion built by financier and railroad magnate LeGrand Lockwood in the 1860s.

Since our story’s publication, we’ve heard from LMMM’s Executive Director Susan Gilgore, who shared some exciting news: The museum has received a major grant of $20,000 from The Xerox Foundation in support of its 2016 educational and cultural programs.

WAG extends its congratulations.
