A box to open, a dress to carefully unfold, a letter with a few lines of faded script, a voice to find and a story to follow. Then the delight of preparing the items for display and sharing the story with the wider world! These are things that make me excited about history. I have been working in small local history museums for the past 10 years, including Memorial Hall in Deerfield, Hatfield Historical Museum, Pelham Historical Society, and the Historical Society of Greenfield. My work spans from preparing 18th c. textiles for display, to clarifying and documenting institutional policies, to presenting at local conferences, to creating a social media presence for a museum. How can I help?
