The purchase of shelving, preservation supplies, and environmental monitoring equipment, recommended from a recent assessment, that would help to preserve a collection of 6,000 objects documenting the nineteenth-century whaling industry and history of Cold Spring Harbor’s growth as a maritime port, one of the three whaling ports on Long Island. The collections include whaling weapons and tools, photographs, correspondence, journals, ship logs, crew lists, and navigational aids, all of which help to tell the story of whaling to an audience that includes researchers, teachers, students, and the public.

The Whaling Museum & Education Center seeks an NEH Preservation Grant to support the purchase of necessary preservation supplies and storage furniture to rehouse at-risk and overcrowded artifacts and archives in the museum’s collection. The goals of this conservation project were derived from recommendations in a 2017 Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) and will improve the museum’s preservation efforts.
