A preservation assessment of the Frontier Culture Museum's collection of artifacts and archival materials that are used at the living history museum to explore the contributions of Indian, French, German, English, Irish, and African settlers to life in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

The American Frontier Culture Foundation, whose sole mission is to support the needs of the Frontier Culture Museum, will support a preservation assessment of the Museum's permanent humanities collection. A professional consultant will conduct an on-site survey of the artifact and archival collection and prepare a report that will serve as the basis of the Museum's preservation plan. Through visits and interviews Ms. Jessup will evaluate the general state of the collection in storage, including security, environmental controls and conditions, environmental monitoring equipment, storage furniture, and policies and procedures relating to the collection. Ms. Jessup will also assess the effectiveness of prior improvements made to the primary collections storage room in the Visitors Center. Her final report will indicate areas that need improvement and include specific remedies. The consultant will also provide recommendations for furnishing future storage facilities.
