Below Ground

Posted by on May 21 2009 | Behind The Scenes

I’ve been showing a lot of photographs of our gardens because they are so glorious right now, but I thought a change of pace might be fun.  

So this is what’s been happening underneath the House and Gardens.  These pics show our new chiller and HVAC system that work to keep our archives at the right  temperature  and humidity—important for the preservation of the valuable photographs and films in the GEH collections.

I couldn’t resist one more picture of the outside of GEH.  One of my favorite trees is this Purple Beech that shades the East Avenue entrance to George Eastman House.
