Join Fort Ticonderoga Collections Manager Tabitha Hubbard as she highlights the incredible work being undertaken by museum staff to document, preserve, and make accessible Ticonderoga’s world-class archival collection.
Fort Ticonderoga is currently cataloging, inventorying, and rehousing the museum’s manuscript collections. Along the way, we are rediscovering hundreds of documents that tell the stories of the people who were here at Ticonderoga. Attendees at this Fort Fever presentation will be able to see manuscripts that have never been on display or have been in museum storage for decades and learn more about the transformative collections management work we are accomplishing here at the museum. Participants will also learn how to use the Ticonderoga Collections Online database to be able to conduct their own research from home.
This project is funded in part a grant from National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
