Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm (Stroudsburg, PA 18360-6857)
Katherine Ambry Linhein Muller (Project Director: May 2017 to present)

Developing an Emergency Response Plan

The hiring of a consultant to undertake a risk assessment for the historic property Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, a family-run farm in rural Pennsylvania that dates from the late 18th to early 20th centuries.  Consisting of six major buildings and several outbuildings, the site has collections that include textiles, farm implements, furniture, and photographs, as well as live heritage breed farm animals. Collections are made available for research, to the public through exhibits, and for school field trips and hands-on activities focusing on the agricultural history of the region in the 19th century. The consultant would visit the farm, undertake the assessment, and create an updated risk management and emergency response plan.

Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm is requesting an award of $6,000 to fund the hiring of a risk management specialist consultant, Samantha Forsko, from the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts, Philadelphia, to write a comprehensive risk management plan for the organization. The consultant would work with Quiet Valley to develop a plan from January to September 2018. Quiet Valley is a 115 acre traditional family farm dating from 1770, with six major structures, several outbuildings, rural life collections, farm equipment and archival materials dating from the early 19th century to the middle 20th century. The collections, buildings, animals and grounds of the site are critical to the educational interpretation of Quiet Valley as we seek to preserve, educate and inspire our guests about Pennsylvania 19th century agricultural and home life on a small farm.
