Preserving Southern Rhode Island Historical Collections

Enhancement of storage environments through HVAC improvements, new equipment to better serve the area where collections storage has been consolidated, installation of insulation and other passive improvements, and protection of the collection from pests and other risks.

The Pettaquamscutt Historical Society, operating as the South County History Center, requests a $110,833.30 National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections implementation grant for HVAC improvements and repairs to the building envelope. These improvements will help ensure the protection of the Center’s collection from temperature shifts, moisture and excess humidity, pests, and the impacts of climate change on our region.
