Phase One returned the 1791 Woodworking Shop and 1798 Clock Shop to their original site and joined them with a reconstruction of the Dominy house. Phase Two will restore the shop interiors and install the mechanical systems necessary to make this a modern museum. The goal is to raise $500,000 to allow the Phase Two work to proceed. Once completed and exhibits installed, this will be one of the top museums of early American crafts in the country.
