Adler House to get facelift

The Adler House Museum is at 2305 Main St.
The Adler House Museum is at 2305 Main St.
The museum in the home of Baker City’s longtime philanthropist, the late Leo Adler, has received a pair of grants, totaling $14,775, that will pay to repaint the exterior of the 123-year-old home this spring.

The Adler House Museum was awarded $6,775 from the Kinsman Foundation of Milwaukie, Ore., and $8,000 from the Leo Adler Community Fund, according to a press release from the Baker County Museum Commission.

The Community Fund is part of the $20 million legacy that Adler bequeathed on his death on Nov. 2, 1993, at age 98.

In addition to the Community Fund, which provides grants to a wide variety of local projects, Adler created a scholarship fund that has helped hundreds of local students attend college.

The Museum Commission has hired Scrivner Painting of Baker City to paint the Adler House. Work will start soon, and will be finished before the museum opens for the season on May 26.

The Adler House will be repainted in the same colors, which are historically accurate, said Chris Cantrell, director of the Baker Heritage Museum, which also is overseen by the Museum Commission.

Adler House will be open Friday through Monday during the summer, through Labor Day, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The popular afternoon teas on the lawn events will continue this year on First Fridays.

Baker Heritage Museum, at 2480 Grove St., is now open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit www.bakerheritagemuseum.
