Help us restore the Archibald Alexander House miniature!


This astonishing miniature of the Archibald Alexander House in Old New Castle, made by its former residents with inspiration from the Read House, requires attention from experts so that audiences can learn from it for years to come. Like the Read House, it gives us an opportunity to examine how our predecessors viewed the past and how those ideas are in direct conversation with the way we address history in the present.
