NMSC: Our Best of 2016!

2016 marked the 100th birthday of America’s National Park Service.  For those of us here at the Northeast Museum Services Center (NMSC), it’s been a productive and fulfilling year.  Once again, we were privileged to work on a variety of projects at national parks across the Northeast Region.  We worked hands-on with some amazing historic structures and objects during the cleaning and reinstallation of the Wayside at Minute Man National Historical Park and the reinstallation of Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site.  We processed archival and archeological collections from several sites, including Women’s Rights National Historical Park and Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.  We assisted Northeast Region parks like Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site with developing planning documents that will help them to manage their museum collections.  And we worked with parks and their partners to create beautiful and educational exhibits, like Bierstadt:  Nature and National Identity, which ran from June through September at the New Bedford Art Museum in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

As 2016 draws to a close, we are honored to share with you some of our favorite memories and proudest accomplishments from this year.  Some of the photos featured here depict our staff and projects we’ve worked on this past year.  Others depict some of the major achievements of our friends and colleagues at various national parks in the Northeast Region.  (For more information, scroll to the bottom of this post.)  It’s been a great year for the National Park Service, the Northeast Region, and NMSC, and we look forward to the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of 2017!
