$40K grant to help draft Fort Ti preservation plan

(November 8, 2019)

Fort Ticonderoga has been named a recipient of a prestigious grant from the National Endowment for Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections grant program in the amount of $40,000.

The funds, according to a news release, will be utilized to develop a Master Preservation and Storage Needs plan for the collections of historical artifacts housed in the Thompson-Pell Research Center on Fort Ticonderoga’s 2,000-acre museum campus and historic site.

The grant will be used to assemble an interdisciplinary team of museum staff and professional consultants to address collections preservation issues as the TPRC is converted into a dedicated collections and Ticonderoga Institute facility.
