Please forgive the mangled messages.  Should be:

"The occasion for reimagining the Ropes Mansion in Salem [Mass.], which is free and open to the public on weekends through October, came from a disaster averted:a small fire in the attic of the home in 2009.  Quickly contained and causing minimal damage, PEM [Peabody Essex Museum] curators [Paula] Richter and Dean Lahikainen, and [Michelle] Moon spent the past two years considering how best to revive the Georgian revival."

A two-year sentence to community service?
