Marble Springs State Historic Site has been awarded $7,190 by the Conservation Assessment Program of Heritage Preservation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The money will be used to hire two assessors to evaluate the museum buildings and collections. After their visits, detailed reports will be provided to the museums staff.
This grant provides a great opportunity for us to learn more about the health and preservation of our structures and collections. It could also help in the quest for grants in the future.
We are honored to have been chosen to participate in the 2012 CAP and look forward to learning how we can improve the management of our structures & collections care.
