Programs Explain How to Preserve Family Heirlooms

Two programs, sponsored by the Trails End State Historic Site in Sheridan and The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo, will teach participants how they can preserve family treasures and heirlooms.

These programs were organized by the two entities in honor of the Second Annual Preservation Week, which runs from April 24th - 30th.

Sylvia Bruner, Assistant Director and Registrar at the Jim Gatchell Museum, explains what types of things that can be preserved.

Bruner said the programs will teach the same principles and techniques museums use to preserve their items, but very simplified for use by the public at home.

Bruner said there will also be more information on other resources and techniques that will be presented at the programs, if anyone is interested.

The first program will be Tuesday, April 26th at 1 pm at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library. The second will be Wednesday, April 27th at 6 pm at the Johnson County Library. The programs are free to attend.
