The W.H. Stark House will be closed until further notice.
A leak developed in the 3rd floor air handler of the W.H. Stark House. Water seeped through the 2nd floor ceiling and continued to the basement. Once discovered, staff worked feverishly to remove contents from the affected rooms and began mitigating the damage. We expect the restoration process, out of necessity for a historic home, will be long. Staff are contacting restoration and conservation specialists to get the best advice we can. Protecting the W.H. Stark House and its contents is our top priority. Consequently the W.H. Stark House will be closed indefinitely as assessments are made. The Stark Foundation will share updates as restoration plans are developed.
