Interpretive Exhibit Plan for Timeline Exhibit
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 expectations were exceeded. The goal of creating an exhibit plan that could result in unique experiences, instill historical knowledge and community pride by current and potential residents was accomplished with a very innovative and unexpected concept. The plan fulfilled the competitive edge I wanted, to be more than a community resource, but an attraction and a gathering place to share stories and experiences. The consultants did so utilizing the spaces creatively and innovatively. I think the consultants were successful because our communication was clear and direct. They asked meaningful questions regarding content and goals. I answered with ready information, potential stories and list of artifacts for inclusion, and an end-vision they valued.
