In February 2023, Connecticut experienced a cold snap, causing temperatures to plummet rapidly, and without warning. The bathroom pipes in the visitor center at the Butler-McCook House in Hartford burst, flooding the Main Street History Center exhibition. Moisture remediation, including several commercial-grade dehumidifiers and fans were employed and the exposed wood floor, which had been damaged extensively, was removed. Over the past few weeks, an eight-inch character oak floor was installed and stained to match the existing by floor restoration expert Tony Stockley. Butler-McCook House & Garden’s staff have been thrilled to welcome visitors back for tours and events in our Main Street History Center!
