Cased photographs small_NEWThe Historical Society of Haddonfield has been selected to participate in a competitive, grant-funded collection stewardship program of the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) valued at nearly $6,000.

Funded through the generous support of the William Penn Foundation, CCAHA’s Philadelphia Stewardship Program is designed to help non-profit collecting institutions achieve their preservation and conservation goals. The program is open to institutions within Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania and Camden County, NJ.

“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to have experts in the field of preservation help us prioritize our needs for our museum and archival collections, which are cared for by a dedicated team of volunteers and staff,” said Carol W. Smith, President of the Historical Society of Haddonfield.

The Historical Society has been selected to participate in Track 1, the Preservation Needs Assessment track. During the 12-month program, the Historical Society will receive a free preservation needs assessment for its museum and archival collections, and staff and volunteers will attend programs in CCAHA’s Collections Care Training series and receive other technical support from CCAHA staff.

CCAHA is a nonprofit conservation facility specializing in the treatment of works on paper, photographs, and books through conservation and state-of-the-art digital imaging services. Founded in Philadelphia in 1977, CCAHA serves both nonprofit cultural institutions and private individuals and organizations. CCAHA’s preservation services staff present educational programs, conduct preservation assessments, and develop emergency preparedness plans. CCAHA’s development department provides fundraising and grant-writing support to institutions seeking assistance for preservation and conservation projects.

3rd Graders Tour Greenfield Hall

July 10, 2015 tours Comments Off on 3rd Graders Tour Greenfield Hall

Kathy leading tourWe had a wonderfully successful school season with over 200 3rd grade children from four local schools tour Greenfield Hall and learn about Haddonfield and the origins of the town. The children made their own butter, which they ate with cornbread. The kids really enjoyed the third floor nursery and play area where they learned about toys from the 18th and 19th century. They toured our tool museum in the basement and saw how early Haddonfield residents plowed their field and built their houses.

On June 10th the Haddonfield Memorial High School Art/Pottery class came to see our historical pottery collection with emphasis on the Haddonfield pottery made in Haddonfield in the 19th and early 20th century.
