Trash or Treasure?
June 24, 11:00AM - 2:00PM

Do you have unique historic objects you’d like us to examine, learn how to preserve, or be organized into a ‘life plan’ to pass on to friends and loved ones?

Join Society curator Cori Convertito, Monroe County Public Libraries archivist Breana Sowers, and Key West artist and architectural historian Sharon Wells as they assist you with advice on how to best catalog and preserve your items for future generations.

KWAHS will present examples from its own permanent collection, samples of archival-grade storage materials, catalogs to peruse that illustrate ideal object storage, handouts relating to digitizing your photograph and paper collections, and information about oral histories.

We provide free museum entry, parking behind the museum, coffee, cookies, and tea – you bring your special items and any historic stories you have about them!

No firearms or any other potentially hazardous or illegal items, please, and note that we CANNOT provide any type of monetary appraisals.

For more information, please contact Cori Convertito at 305.295.6616 x112 or via email
