Michael Dube – Plaster & Stucco Specialist
Palmyra, New York
With experience extending over more than five decades, master craftsman Michael Dube is an artisan whose careful repair of historic stucco and plaster work has enhanced some of the most important buildings in our region. A native of Maine, where he received his initial training, Mr. Dube opened his local workshop in 1972. Projects have included flat plaster and stucco restoration on interiors and exteriors, as well as the casting and repair of decorative plaster details that were damaged or no longer extant. In addition to dozens of residential projects at area homes dating from the early 1800’s to the mid-20th century, Mr. Dube’s work can be seen at the Susan B. Anthony House, Genesee Country Village and Museum, Penfield’s Dayton Corners School House, Corpus Christi and First Universalist churches, and the Hervey Ely House headquarters of the D.A.R. in Corn Hill.
