Preservation & Conservation

The conservation and preservation of its historic houses and their collections is The Preservation Society of Newport County's top priority.  From the restoration of the Chateau-sur-Mer roof, to the conservation of fragile textiles, to the cleaning and restoration of valuable paintings and much more, at any given time dozens of projects are underway.  A few of those projects will be documented here from time to time.
