Concord: At the Center of Revolution

Implementation of a new permanent, 6,000-square-foot exhibition, education materials, and public programs exploring the history of Concord in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 

The Concord Museum requests a $400,000 Public Humanities implementation grant to support the design, fabrication, and installation of a new permanent 6,000 sq. ft. exhibition, "Concord: At the Center of Revolution", and the development of dynamic related educational programming. This new interpretation addresses the NEH’s special encouragement to “consider the impact – both immediate and long term – of the momentous events of 1776” and to “advance civic education and knowledge of America’s core principles of government.” Grounded in new humanities scholarship, the exhibition will increase the Museum’s capacity to engage a range of adult visitors, families, and K-12 audiences with Concord’s history and its relevance to the present.
