Museum postcard

Postcard showing Museum after 1949 additions.  Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


In designing the additions to the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, architect William E. Shepherd was careful not to allow the new wings detract from the original building. He chose to use brick and limestone that mimicked those used on the 1931 building. The 1949 additions are also set slightly back from the original fa├žade and, without the balustrade included in the original, are slightly shorter so as not to overshadow the small first unit.
