Society for the Preservation of Weeksville/Bedford-Stuyvesant History (Brooklyn, NY 11238)
Jennifer Scott (Project Director: 05/20/2010 to present)

Environmental Monitoring of Collection Spaces

The purchase of equipment to monitor environmental conditions in three mid-19th-century house museums where archival and material culture collections are stored and exhibited. The collections document everyday life in Weeksville, an independent community that was organized in Brooklyn in 1838 by African American entrepreneurs and land investors to promote economic, social, and political rights for African Americans.

Weeksville Heritage Center (WHC) requests a grant of $3,625 to purchase additional equipment to monitor the environmental conditions of the organization's collection. Equipment purchases are based on WHC's Collections Assessment and include ten PEM2 dataloggers and one PEM2 USB flash drive. The additional equipment will allow WHC to continuously monitor all collections areas and help ensure preservation of the historic objects.
