CONSERVATION

In addition to the proper housing and handling of its collections, the Society undertakes conservation treatments to ensure the long-term preservation of the wide variety of materials under its care. The goal of this work is to stabilize the collections items and return them as much as possible to their original condition and appearance, so they may continue to be made accessible for research, exhibition, and other purposes. The Society has called upon the services of top conservators in the field for projects that range from books and manuscripts to artworks, artifacts, and the historic fabric of Anderson House.
