    Abstract:
    The Litchfield Historical Society (LHS) is seeking a Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a long range Environmental Management and Facilities Care Plan for the Society's four buildings and the collections housed in them: the Noyes Memorial Building, the Tapping Reeve House, the Litchfield Law School, and the Pamela Cunningham Copeland Curatorial Center. The grant will allow LHS to assemble an interdisciplinary team of experts consisting of an architect, engineer, conservator, and HVAC contractor to comprehensively review each building's interior, exterior, HVAC systems, and current collections environment and provide a written report with recommendations addressing immediate issues and long term projects. The Facilities and Environmental Management Committee will then use these reports to create a long range Environmental Management and Facilities Care Plan for the society.
    Notes:
    A planning project to develop strategies for managing environmental conditions for collections related to Connecticut and American history and culture that are housed in four historic buildings.
