Living History Farms (Urbandale, IA 50322-3724)
Daniel E. Jones (Project Director: May 2021 to present)
Rebuilding Staff Capacity for Humanities Programs at Living History Farms

Improvements to the Ioway Farm site, programs on Ioway culture, a pilot class, activities exploring the immigrant experiences, and Juneteenth event planning.

The proposed project rebuilds staff capacity at two critical museum sites, so Living History Farms can resume providing hands-on experiences for Iowa schoolchildren and visitors from around the world to engage in exploration of Iowa's rural history and the contributions of agriculture to our nation's development. These sites tie directly to NEH's A More Perfect Union priority, one addressing the experience of Native Americans and the other, America's place in the world as a refuge for immigrants. The project also supports the acquisition of materials, the hiring of a consultant and development of interpretive manuals to help tell those stories. Many of these activities are focused on the 40th anniversary of LHF’s Ioway Farm site. The project also includes reinstatement of Program Registrar and Collections Curator positions, along with materials and consultant assistance to support the work of these positions.

Jaime Leigh Nicolet Rutan (Project Director: January 2022 to present)
Application of Window Filters and Environmental Monitors to Protect and Preserve Humanities Collections at Living History Farms

The purchase and installation of ultraviolet light filters for three buildings and environmental monitoring equipment for 20 buildings at Living History Farms, a 500-acre outdoor history museum that includes three farm sites, a country homestead, and the 1876-era town of Walnut Hill.

The proposed project involves introduction of window film to filter out ultraviolet rays that can damage collections artifacts in the three buildings that house the most valuable and difficult-to-replace Living History Farms (LHF) collections. The project also involves introduction of monitoring equipment to assist LHF staff in keeping track of environmental conditions in the 20 buildings spread across 500 acres where collections are displayed and/or stored, in order to prevent deterioration of artifacts caused by conditions such as excessive or inadequate humidity.
