Whistler House Museum of Art

Lowell MA

Charters Brothers was selected by Lowell Art Association and the City of Lowell Better Building Program for the Historic Restoration and Energy Upgrade to the Whistler House Museum of Art, the birthplace of painter James McNeill Whistler.

The project involved replacement of the original cedar clapboards, windows, detailed restoration of the existing custom trim, gutters, windows, architectural features, and a high quality paint job. It also included a new state of the art heating and cooling system, insulation, and custom interior storm windows.

Challenges included: working on an occupied museum in downtown Lowell, coordinating with the Lowell and National Historical Society, safety of the public, preservation of original historic details, protection of priceless pieces of art throughout the  renovation, and weather.
