Improving Storage by Rehousing the Collections of the Rice County Kansas Historical Society's Coronado Quivira Museum

A preservation workshop and the purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse 400 artifacts related to the history of Rice County, Kansas.  Collection items include Native American materials from the Quivira and Wichita tribes, and farm implements, glass objects, and utilitarian household items from the homesteading period.

The Rice County Historical Society is requesting $6,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions to support 1) the training of the collection manager and four volunteers and 2) the purchasing of preservation supplies which will be used to rehouse 400 personal adornment artifacts, utilitarian household items, and glass objects in the permanent collection.  The activities are based upon recommendations in the Conservation Assessment Program's collection survey conducted at the Rice County Historical Society's Coronado Quivira Museum, Lyons, Kansas, in August 2014 by conservator Mary Frederickson.  This project will further advance the preservation efforts which have taken place as a result of the CAP report.
