One-day Workshop:
Getting Your Historic House (Museum) in Order: Foundation Documents for Managing Your Historic Property

Saturday September 17 at Rutgers-Camden
If you missed this informative workshop last year, here is a second chance to attend, thanks to the newly launched Historic Preservation Continuing Education Program at Rutgers Camden.
This one-day workshop is open to volunteer and professional stewards of historic house museums who are looking to improve the preservation and interpretation of their site.
The course provides in-depth information about the planning documents that serve as the foundation for preserving, maintaining and interpreting historic house museums.  The workshop will focus on the components of each plan and how, together, the plans become the framework for site management. The workshop includes a tour of the nearby Walt Whitman House as a case study based on information presented.
Topics to be covered include:
  • Guidance on the development of Historic Structure Reports
  • Additional strategies for site preservation and interpretation, including plans for interiors, landscapes, fundraising, and maintenance
  • How disaster planning and ADA compliance impact historic sites
  • Tips on finding and working with consultants
Instructors:
Dorothy Hartman, Principal, History in the Making
Margaret M. Hickey, RA, Principal Historic Preservation Specialist, Connolly & Hickey Historical Architects
