The Calgrove Fire shut down the William S. Hart Museum last week, and it has yet to be reopened as of Monday afternoon.
“The smoke smell has dissipated from within the mansion, and the collections will be returning this week to the mansion,” said museum administrator Margi Bertram. “We anticipate it will take us one to two days to return all the collections to their rightful locations and open the museum.”
The historic artifacts were removed from the museum and taken to a secure offsite location after the fire got within a few miles from the property.
“While we didn’t exactly know which way the winds were going to take the fire, we wanted to be prepared, so (Natural History Museum administrators) made the decision to send 18 staff people and two bobtail trucks out to the Hart Mansion to begin evacuation of the collections,” Bertram. “The staff included individuals from the registrar, conservation, exhibits and operations, all of whom have worked together and know how to appropriately wrap and care for the collections.”
Museum tours were cancelled and everyone present at the ranch was evacuated at the time of the fire.
Although the mansion is temporarily closed, Hart Park is open to the public. To stay up to date on information regarding the museum and park, log on to this website.
