Medford Historical Society & Museum, Collections Preservation Assessment

A preservation assessment of a local history collection consisting of 20 linear feet of letters, land documents, scrapbooks, and other archival records; 30 linear feet of reference books and journal articles; 15 linear feet of photographs; and more than one thousand Native American artifacts and other historic objects related to the history of Medford, Massachusetts.


The Medford Historical Society & Museum (MHSM) preserves and shares with the public a diverse collection of unique and valuable items documenting the rich history of Medford, Massachusetts and its role in the development of the nation. Its humanities collections consist of archives and objects, largely items from the 18th and 19th centuries and a major Civil War photograph collection, as well as Native American and 20th century. Significant figures from Colonial through the post-Revolutionary eras - military, government, and industry; also authors and abolitionists - are represented, as well as items from ordinary citizens which tell the story of daily life. The museum serves the local and broad public through exhibits, programs, educational outreach, and research resources. The grant would provide a comprehensive collections assessment with the goal of preserving and properly maintaining the wide variety of materials to serve this mission.
