Digital Technology Outreach Specialist for the Minnesota Historical Society.

Support from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund enabled the Northfield Historical Society to complete a project that has been part of their long range plan since NHS was established in 1975. The $200,000 grant leveraged over $400,000 of additional money to provide full access to the Scriver Block, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, for all Minnesotans. Additionally the elevator will enable the NHS to safely move objects that it holds in public trust, ensuring those objects will be around for future Minnesotans to enjoy. The project also created jobs for construction workers in the short term, but should provide a catalyst for further development that was not possible if the building had remained largely inaccessible.
