New at Kimberly Crest
The Spotlight is on…
The recent acquisition of a high quality scanner has allowed priceless photographs from the collection to be uploaded into our museum software and online. This allows us to track and store fragile images as well utilize them in displays, social media and advertising. The photography collection is extensive and to efficiently complete this task Kimberly Crest is taking applications for a Collections Intern. For more information and to complete the application please visit KimberlyCrest.Org/Internships.
Thank-you to the Daughters of the American Revolution for your donation towards the purchase of the scanner.
Before and after–what a difference! The areas by the back pond, behind the Carriage House and along the side of the Carriage House towards the orange groves were recently cleared out. An exciting landscaping project for the back pond area is scheduled to begin in Spring of 2017.

Collaborations with the Historical Glass Museum
Kimberly Crest and the Historical Glass Museum of Redlands are pairing up again. We are heading into our third year of collaborating on exhibits and decorations with the Glass Museum and looking forward to their display for our April Second Sunday program. The Historical Glass Museum has the largest collection of American made glass west of the Mississippi River and is located in the heart of downtown Redlands.
