Moving Lew

Boxes of Lew Wallace's books and other large artifacts await the arrival of Red Ball Superior Moving and Storage to take them to the off-site storage location.


Grounds Manager Deb King watches her step carrying a chair out of the Study. This is the first time these artifacts have left the Study since Lew moved them in 1897!


Movers wait for the elevator to bring Lew's desk to its temporary home. They got quite an education from Collections Manager Amanda McGuire on how to pack and carry historic furniture. We were so grateful for their careful professionalism!



Boxes and artifacts rest in their temporary residence. It only took 2 hours to move the books and furniture, clearing space in the Study to pack other artifacts.
After the long morning, we enjoyed a celebratory post-move lunch. What a relief to have the first part of the move done!
