What is Public History?
Public history tells compelling, entertaining, true stories using language, artifacts, images, architecture, and landscapes to connect with the public. It is a dynamic, responsive, and socially just discipline that goes beyond the study of history, it does history.
Interpret. Exhibit. Preserve.
Exhibits and programming are the heart and soul of museums. Thoughtful, well-researched, and beautifully designed displays engage visitors and spark curiosity about the past.
Protecting the architecture and landscapes that make places unique is worth investing in. From architectural surveys, to National Register of Historic Places nominations, to advocating for important heritage sites, there are a range of tools to preserve historically significant structures, buildings and landscapes.
