Consultation with scholars and an audience evaluator to develop a permanent exhibition that introduces visitors to the history of an antebellum free black community.

Weeksville Heritage Center requests $15,000 from NEH through Interpreting America's Historic Places: Consultation Grants. The grant will support Weeksville’s efforts to create a permanent orientation exhibition which will be housed in the new education building opening in 2009. The exhibition will introduce the visitor to the Weeksville Heritage Center, present research and information about historic Weeksville and the Hunterfly Road houses, and launch visitors on to their experience of the houses and grounds. To achieve the best visitor experience, Weeksville seeks the support of NEH to conduct preliminary audience research and convene a group of humanities experts to determine the best interpretive approach for the Weeksville site.
