Clegg Mural Restoration
Your help is needed!
The historically significant Clegg Mural has departed the Hancock House for its visit to the conservator. 
 
After receiving a grant for the conservation of our mural depicting the significant historic battlefields from Plattsburgh to Saratoga, we still need funds from other sources to help with reframing after conservation treatment.  
 
Conservation funding is being provided by the Greater Hudson Heritage Network in partnership with public funds provided by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.  
 
The four-foot by eight-foot mural was created by English graphic artist Ernest Clegg.  
 
“This mural is a one-of-a-kind work commissioned by Horace Moses for the 1925 opening of the Hancock House,” 
said THS President Bill Dolback.  
"The years have taken a toll on the work and it is now considerably darkened and showing paint loss. We are delighted
and deeply grateful for this grant, which will conserve and restore this important piece of art to its original glory.”
 
Conservation work on the mural is being overseen by Carolyn Frisa of Works on Paper LLC.  Located in Vermont,
Works on Paper has an impressive client list and extensive experience conserving a wide range of artistic and
historic works on paper.
 
New framing for the historical artwork is critical to ensure the piece will continue to glowingly display area history to future generations of Hancock House visitors. Showcasing such pieces is part of The Ticonderoga Historical Society mission and your support is vital in reaching that goal.
 
As an incentive to supporters, those who donate $100.00 or more to this particular effort will receive a free copy of the newest book added to our Gift Shop.  A Pictorial History of the Life and Accomplishments of Horace A. Moses 1862 - 1947, written and compiled by Robert W. Kidd and William B. Barber, highlights the local philanthropist who gifted the Hancock House to Ticonderoga.  Normally priced at $30.00 this book is a must for serious collectors of Ticonderoga material and is limited in supply.
