The November Behind-the-Scenes is hosted by:  



Historic Huguenot Street staff members will present their experiences and lessons-learned through the 2016-17 NEH Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collection project that they are completing this year. The project involved working with preservation experts Michael C. Henry and Richard Kerschner to explore practical ways to improve environmental climate for both historic houses and the collections displayed within, while reducing reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels and cutting their associated costs through the implementation of passive and other sustainable methods appropriate to the historic structures. The presentation will also include HHS's implementation of E-Climate notebook and other upgrades to environmental monitoring.  The event will include tours of the Jean Hasbrouck House and the Bevier-Elting House. Afterwards, a reception with wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be held at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center.
