Backstory and Context
Architect Christopher Quirk led renovations of the American Saddlebred Museum in 2018. Marking only the second renovation at the museum since its inception, updates were done on the entrance, exhibits, and gift shop. A new catering kitchen and outside deck were added to allow the museum to host more elaborate events in the future.
