Rehousing Historical Artifacts

The purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse a collection of 955 historical objects, including weapons, flags, uniforms, ceramics, and jewelry dating from the time of the American Revolution to the 20th century.

The Georgia Historical Society (GHS) requests NEH support to purchase archival supplies to address consultant recommendations relating to the care, preservation, and storage of artifacts within the GHS collection. Over the course of the grant term, GHS archival staff will purchase appropriate archival supplies and will re-house a total of 955 artifacts held in the GHS collection. In addition, GHS will purchase and install UV-absorbing shields on fluorescent bulbs in the lower stacks area to further address consultant recommendations for the proper care and preservation of archival collections.
