The hiring of a preservation consultant to develop a plan for improved storage of the museum's collection in a climate-controlled environment. The collection contains books, periodicals, photographs, maps, newspapers, paintings, and county records documenting the history, genealogy, and traditions of the Central West Virginia area.

The Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants operates the Central West Virginia Genealogy and History Library and Museum. The collections have currently outgrown the available space. A plan is being developed to build an addition to the current building for the purpose of housing the collections. This Preservation Assessment will provide information concerning the size and type of space and storage needed which will be a resource for the development of the building plans.
