A contractor has concluded several weeks of work to make the Bedford Museum present a prettier face to the public.
"This job has been 80 percent prep," noted Ivan Kirby, owner of Kirby Custom Painters, of Lynchburg. Kirby said he has been in business for 18 years.
He and Kenneth Burdette, who has worked for Kirby for 10 years, had to go over the window sills three times to seal the 110 year old wood. Kirby said that he found 2-inch gaps in them.
