We are excited to announce the opening of our newest exhibit! Preservation and Process: Preservation at the Kenilworth Historical Society. The mission of the Kenilworth Historical Society, is to preserve, collect and interpret local historical materials and make them available to the public. One of the most important aspects of the Society is preservation. Without historic materials we have nothing to interpret or share with the public. In order to serve as a museum and repository for these materials we need ongoing attention to preservation. In this exhibit, we will highlight various preservation techniques to maintain our archival, photographic, and object-based collections.
Featured in this exhibit are costume pieces, which have been recently restored after suffering water damage from last spring’s flood. Also, on display are a variety of metal, wooden, and paper artifacts that illustrate the various methods of preservation currently practiced at KHS. We have also highlighted the various properties in Kenilworth that have been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. If you would like to learn more about preservation or check out some of these rarely seen artifacts, stop by the historical society.
