This summer, GCHS will bring our collections online! In honor of the Civil War 150th, a local high school student will be helping us by making a virtual exhibit of our Civil War collections. This project is part of the Berkshire High School Senior Service Project required by all students to graduate.
Visitors to our website will be able to click and interact with the various Civil War era artifacts we have on site including guns, clothing, canteens, blankets (read previous blog post), books, diaries, and more.
This is the first online step in our continuing effort to bring our collections to a wider array of visitors. Stay tuned for more updates…or drop us a note and let us know which collection you would like to see online next!
Would you like to help us with one of our collections? Contact the office at 440-834-1492 for more information on how you can get involved!
