The Heritage Center and Museum were accepted as participants in the 2017 Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) Program. Administered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artist Works and funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), CAP assists museums in improving the care of their collections by providing support for a conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and buildings. A team of two preservation professionals will spend two days surveying the site and meeting with staff before preparing a comprehensive report that will identify preventive conservation priorities. The assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collections care efforts in the coming years. Site visits by the assessors will take place this summer.
