Lancaster County Campus of History

Endowment for a Research Assistant and Curatorial Intern as well as research fellowships, and annual programming for the new Campus of History

The Lancaster County Campus of History is a humanities-centered joint project of the Lancaster County Historical Society and the James Buchanan Foundation for the Preservation of Wheatland. NEH challenge funds will create an endowment to support a new roster of research fellowships, key humanities staff, engaging public programming, and facilities maintenance of a new 26,000-square-foot addition to the historical society that will accommodate new research facilities, archival, library, and collections storage areas, exhibition galleries, learning centers, and a multi-use auditorium. Our principle objectives are to enhance and expand humanities-based programming to better explore foundational themes of American history by demonstrating the relationship between local, regional, and national stories, events, and people; and to create a new paradigm for local historical organizations as centers for critical historical reflection on America's past.
