Work Candids from the Museum and Mansion

Many thanks to all the hardworking helpers that are keeping the Museum and Worthington Park project moving forward by leaps and bounds!

Nancy Bennett Sedlacek is shown below, planning for a Worthington Recipe Cookbook. Nancy is a former QHS student and graduate who, as a Home Economics teacher, is volunteering to chair the project of publishing the Worthington recipe booklet and notes that we found in the attic.  She has been doing months of refining and taste-testing the many recipes, some of them quite cryptyic, all of them straight from an era long ago. Nancy is also the maker of the beautiful Victorian doll house shown below that we raffled as a fundraiser several years ago, and the Victorian items in the Museum Gift Shop.

Big thanks go to the Peninsula Paint Center and the wonderful Benjamin Moore Paint representative for all their help and generosity and to Carl’s Building Supply of Chimacum, WA.

Thank you to Josh Mahan, with an assist from Mike Schafer, for their excellent work at the Hamilton-Worthington house. That’s Josh in the photo at right, below.
