Art and Archival Collection Preservation Needs Assessment

A preservation assessment of art, material culture, and archival collections that document the history of Dallas and North Central Texas. The museum's nearly 24,000-item collection includes furniture, household accessories, costumes, textiles, tools, and equipment used in daily life during the period 1840 to 1910.

The Dallas County Heritage Society seeks funding to hire a qualified conservation specialist to conduct an assessment of preservation needs for our collection of approximately 24,000 artifacts. The results of this assessment would serve as the basis for a long-range preservation plan for the collection, and to seek grant funding for conservation of collection items. Previous general collection assessments (MAP II and MAP I) have recommended such a survey.
