The Moore-Lindsay Historical House, which is a property owned by the city of Norman, is expected to close Tuesday for a slight face-lift on the first floor of the museum.
“All of the plaster is going to be repaired. All of the cracks and all of the holes in the plaster. All of the wallpaper is coming down as well, and we are having all of the wallpaper replaced by professionals,” Smith said.
Smith is hoping the renovations will be complete before the garage sale.
“They are supposed to only take one month for renovation. The full month of March is what we are shooting for, but that is kind of a tentative date. We’ll do everything we can to be open by then (April 13),” Smith said.
For the remainder of February, Smith and volunteers will be busy packing up items on the first floor and placing them in storage.
“We will start packing up all of our collections, moving all our furniture. And beginning around the first week of March, they would like to start the work,” Smith said. “I will be at the museum office, so I can visit with people if they have any questions. We won’t be able to give tours for awhile, obviously.”
