            Xerox Foundation’s President Dr. Joseph Cahalan said, “We are so proud to continue our partnership with the Lockwood-Matthews Mansion and to play a small part in its huge success. The Mansion has made tremendous progress in recent years in reaching more and more students of all ages with excellent programming that helps us understand our present by re-visiting our past. The Mansion is a treasure in our community.”

            Xerox support is helping the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum fund a variety of cultural and educational programs this year including tours for students and adults, lectures, special presentations and exhibits that focus on 19th century technological and scientific discoveries that revolutionized the way people lived and are still very relevant today. 

          The Museum’s Executive Director Susan Gilgore thanked The Xerox Foundation saying, “We are very grateful for Xerox’s support. Their very generous contribution helps us develop outstanding, meaningful programs that highlight American history and keep this National Historic Landmark vibrantly present and connected to our community. ”

           Tours will begin in April and are offered Wednesdays through Sundays, at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m.
