Preparing Historic House Museums and Historic Sites for America’s 250th

April 12, 2023

Are you ready for America’s 250th? Open to public historians of any period, we will use a new toolkit to assist participants in shaping their approach to 2026. Participants can select just the morning session (ideal if you’re just getting started with your 250th planning), or the full day experience if your plans are a little more developed. In the morning session the workshop will cover engagement with the themes of America’s 250th, building inclusive and dynamic narratives of the revolution(s), and creation of relevant and meaningful experiences for audiences. In the afternoon session participants should bring materials from their sites to workshop programming, collaboration, and funding opportunities.

Facilitators:

Sarah Evanson, University at Albany, SUNY
Anne Lindsay, California State University, Sacramento
Laura Macaluso, Independent Scholar and Author
Hilary Miller, Adams National Historical Park, National Park Service
Amy Speckart, Rare Book School at the University of Virginia
