Frazier International History Museum General Preservation Assessment

Hiring a consultant to conduct a general preservation assessment of the collections of the Frazier International History Museum. They include weapons, firearms, leather accoutrements, textiles, paintings, historic photographs, and archival materials. Among the best-known items are hilted swords from the American Revolution and the War of 1812, a presentation rifle belonging to George Washington, General George Custer's Navy Colt revolvers, Native American textiles, and a Daniel Boone family Bible. Items from the collection are used in the classroom, in teacher training workshops, and in public programs.

The Preservation Assistance Grant requested by the Frazier International History Museum will fund a general assessment of the museum's collections. This grant will provide the Frazier Museum with the funding necessary to contract with a conservation consultant to assess the historical collections of the museum. The goal of this project is to provide Frazier Museum staff with an overall plan for the conservation of our collection. In addition, the assessment will establish institutional priorities by identifying objects at the highest level of risk, recommending forms of treatment as required, and providing guidance for ongoing conservation review.
