The Seward House Museum may be closed until March 1, but the staff has been hard at work. In addition to preparing the museum for the new season, Director of Education Jeff Ludwig and Exhibits Director Matt MacVittie have been playing detectives in New York City.
Allie Hinman said on Wednesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News little is known about the relationship between Stewart and the Seward family.
Ludgwig and MacVittie will also be poring over Seward papers and records currently being digitized at the University of Rochester. The work is being funded by a $20,000 grant from the Network to Freedom.
