On Monday, October 8, the Kelley House Museum is hosting the Second Annual MARTHA WAGNER Service Day

. . . when volunteers pitch in and help out with minor repairs, painting and gardening at the 1861 historic house and grounds. The late Martha Wagner was a steadfast benefactor of the Kelley House who was passionate about the garden.
