Preservation & Restoration through Campus Improvements

The renovation of climate control systems in a history museum along with the restoration of several associated historic structures, which together document the history of the Mississippi River and of the people who lived on its banks.

Dubuque County Historical Society's Preservation & Restoration through Campus Improvements project will focus on preserving and maintaining our historical structures and intellectual property, expanding the river story that relates directly to history and innovation, and reinvigorating our interpretation model to provide the 21st century learner with real-world, vital, interdisciplinary, and design-based learning that relates directly to the humanities.
