Summer 2014 Forum Journal: Stepping into the Future at Historic Sites

03-09-2016 09:02

Historic sites are cool these days. Not because they are a place to get out the summer's heat, but because cool stuff is happening--community gardens, gatherings for student activists, performance art, surprising exhibits, and creative workshops to name just a few. And it turns out there are an awful lot of them too. A recent survey by the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences finds more than 16,000 history related sites including historical societies, house museums and historic sites in the U.S. Discover how these “old” places are breaking “new” ground with innovative programming, updated collections policies, and community outreach initiatives in the summer issue of the Forum Journal.
