Hiring a consultant to conduct a preservation assessment of the current building, revise disaster preparedness guidelines, and review environmental specifications for a proposed new building to relocate the collections. The collection's 2,000 artifacts document Georgetown's rich 300-year history and include photographs, maps, textile items including quilts and hand-loomed bedspreads, and archival records.

Phase 1 of the Museum Preservation Project involves a highly qualified consultant to assess the preservation needs of the Georgetown County Museum, both in its current location and for the relocation to a larger building. He will provide a written report, with recommendations. The Project Director will convene a meeting of Museum staff, volunteers, and Board Members for a presentation on the assessment findings and facilitation of a discussion by the consultant. The group will be convened at a later date for a presentation and discussion on disaster preparedness for the Museum. The consultant will provide his recommendation on an appropriate guideline for museum disaster preparedness and will present the highlights and lead a discussion. The project activities will not only result in a plan of care for the collection, but will also involve, educate, and motivate Museum staff, volunteers, and Board Members to continue and assist in the preservation effort.
