Wethersfield Historical Society Collections Survey


  • Organization Name:
    Wethersfield Historical Society

  • Organization City:
    Wethersfield

  • Amount Awarded:
    $9,990.00

  • Fiscal Year:
    FY19

  • Grant Summary:

    Funding will allow the Wethersfield Historical Society to survey the current collection and deaccession and dispose of objects that do not fit the approved scope, or are redundant, creating more room for newer collection objects. In the course of this process WHS will identify collection objects and themes that can be used for future exhibitions. The current object collection is heavily focused on the 19th century, and in order to reflect more recent periods of Wethersfield’s history, the society endeavors to add more 20th and 21st century objects to the collection. Collections management software will be evaluated and potentially upgraded or migrated elsewhere with a goal of having better intellectual and physical control of one of its most important assets and be able to use that asset to the greatest advantage for the service of its community.
