The objects and books are being deaccessioned from the Charles Shultz House to benefit the collections fund of Montclair History Center in Montclair, New Jersey.
Shultz House, also known as Evergreens, was built by Charles Shultz in 1896. The large, stately home was occupied by three generations of the Shultz family. From Charles to his granddaughter Molly, the home was owned by this family for 100 years. These were inquisitive people with many interests: they were scientists, inventors, tinkerers, woodworkers, craftspeople, outdoor sports enthusiasts, gardeners, naturalists, travelers and readers. "Time capsule" best describes the home; the contents are endlessly intriguing for their breadth and variety.
The property was bequeathed to the non-profit Montclair History Center (MHC) in 1996 and was opened as a house museum until 2019. Despite a deep love and respect for the house, and due to substantial maintenance costs, MHC is de-accessioning the property, including the contents of both the main house and the carriage house. Some items have been retained by the MHC to tell the story of the Shultz family and Montclair history; others have been passed along to Shultz family members.
Nye & Company will be offering the complete contents of Charles Shultz's comprehensive late Victorian science library, together with an interesting and unusual array of scientific experiments and equipment.
Highlights include three mid- and late-19th century microscopes, including a Bausch & Lomb "Continental"
