Project Overview

The PCHS updated PastPerfect Museum software from 3.0 to 5.0. This has improved the overall management and public accessibility of the collections.

Specifically, the software has made the Schoolhouse and the Military Uniform collections more searchable, traceable and available to researchers. Staff also have more complete information about what objects are housed in the Museum.
