Furniture and Archival Supplies for Improving the Storage of Material Culture Collections

The purchase of shelving and supplies to improve the storage of furniture and textiles, which are part of a 25,000-item collection that documents the history of Dallas and North Central Texas during the period 1840 to 1910. The society's collections are exhibited in 38 historic domestic and commercial buildings located in Dallas Heritage Village.

The Dallas County Heritage Society seeks a Preservation Assistance Grant to purchase archival quality storage furniture and supplies for the proper housing of our collections. These needs have been identified as priorities by Csilla Felker Dennis, who conducted a detailed preservation needs assessment of the collection, funded by a Preservation Assistance Grant awarded December 1, 2008.
