Last week, we presented the final two sessions of our summer Photo Preservation workshop series at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown (Chautauqua County) and the George Eastman Museum in Rochester (Monroe County, pictured). Ready or not, it's time to start looking ahead to the fall! Starting in October, we'll present a new series on Mold in five convenient locations throughout the State. Each location will host morning and afternoon sessions of the same program. Register today for one of these ten sessions.
For the latest chat in our ongoing Q&A series, we headed to Lewis County and the American Maple Museum, where Executive Director Christine Colon talked to us about New York State’s rich history of maple production and shared some big news about the organization.
In our latest Q&A, we traveled to the New York Museum of Transportation in Rush (Monroe County) where archivist Jim Dierks answered our questions about this volunteer-run organization. In addition to fourteen full size trolley cars, a steam locomotive, and other assorted antique vehicles, the Museum is home to a rich archive of photographs, maps, and other historic documents of Upstate New York’s transportation history.
For our latest chat, we reached out to the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse. DHPSNY staff had a wonderful visit there in early 2017 when the Museum hosted one of our Essential Policies and Procedures workshops, and we’ve since wanted to dig deeper into the Museum’s history and collections. Ashley Maready, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions, and Amie Flanigan, Project Archivist, teamed up to answer our questions.
