More than a House

So far this semester I have been working on the exhibit about the Horace Williams House for the 40th Anniversary Celebration alongside fellow intern Ben. My part of the exhibit will showcase the adaptive reuse of the Horace Williams House through its use for art exhibits, historic exhibits, and community events.

After some initial difficulty with the first format for the website we tried, the site is now coming along well. The site will feature both the exhibit about the adaptive reuse of the house as well as the projects done by the Preservation Society over its forty-year history, which is Ben’s section.

Other than the exhibit, I have continued to scan new images found in the archival collection and will be adding them to the digital collection. Here are a few of the new images.
