I toured the Aiken-Rhett House. It was built by John Robinson in 1820, and was later sold to William Aiken Sr in 1827. Aiken’s family added many additions and changed the location of the entrance. The museum aims to now preserve and not restore. #geography#Lowcountry#place#museum#publichistory#preservation
From the outside, it looked like a private school or college campus. Indeed there were not even fences in the early history of this prison. Times have changed, no? Thanks to Pontiac, IL resident Don Hicks for this fascinating postcard image of the Illinois State Reformatory.

"You brought back a lot of memories that you'd prefer to forget, but then again you have to bring them out periodically or you would lose your sanity. As the years go on, and I'm finding this with a lot of veterans, a) they don't talk about the war. Secondly, they don't tell some of their experiences, and some of the damage that was caused to them. We were just kids and we could handle a lot of stress and strain physically, but mentally we were shook up. As long as there are veterans around, we're a comfort to each other." - Fred C. Passmore

This extraordinary image was found in a box of documents at a garage sale in Hudson, NY. The box, found and purchased by Hudson resident, Lisa Durfee in 2011, contained over 100 pages of institutional records from the NYS Training School for Girls. Lisa graciously allowed our founder, Tracy Huling, to scan these documents in March of 2013.
I wrote this grant with young museum professionals in mind. If we want to preserve our history we have to provide jobs and internships for the next generation. This grant will provide vital opportunities that will increase the number of minorities in the field of museums/archives. Thanks to IMLS @us_imls for awarding $130,000 in this grant cycle and $135,000 over the 2015-17 cycle! #imakemoneymoves 💰 #publichistory#hbcu#preservation#bethunecookman
