The Future is Calling: Developing a Master Preservation and Storage Needs Plan for Ticonderoga’s Collections

A planning project to develop a strategy for reuse of a historic building in order to increase capacity for collections storage, preventive conservation, and energy efficiency.

Fort Ticonderoga requests funding to assemble a collaborative team of museum staff and consultants to develop a Master Preservation and Storage Needs Plan for the collections housed in the Thompson-Pell Research Center. The Plan will provide museum staff with professional guidance and recommendations for addressing collections preservation issues within the historic building as it is converted into a dedicated Collections and Research Facility. The Plan will also include recommendations concerning the storage needs for a new 3,000-object collection that the museum will be acquiring and moving to the TPRC in 2022. This project will enable Fort Ticonderoga to move forward to fulfill its mission in transformative ways, while also serving as a model for other cultural institutions through the dissemination of a white paper report that discusses the effectiveness of the sustainable preservation strategies used.
