Governor's Residence Video: Production Phase
Statewide Historic and Cultural Grants. $5,250,000 the first year and $5,250,000 the second year are for history programs and projects operated or conducted by or through local, county, regional, or other historical or cultural organizations; or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.
Our short term goal was to complete the video and deliver it to the 1006 Summit Avenue Society by June 15, 2013. That was accomplished on June 12, 2013.
Another short-term goal (though not listed in our grant application) was to post the video online. This was accomplished on June 19, 2013.
Our intermediate and long term goals, of increasing knowledge and support for the Residence are difficult to measure today. The Residence is temporarily closed for public tours due to for renovation projects. The video has been seen by 68 people as of July 21, 2013. We predict that number will increase this fall and in December, when our audience becomes aware the residence is closed, and our websites more clearly direct people to the video.
