New Solutions for House Museums
The book is being used in graduate school classes in museum studies, historic preservation and public history programs across the country. Published by AltaMira Press in 2007, Donna’s book is part of a joint publishing agreement between AltaMira Press and the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) to identify important books in the field.
Donna has published articles about reuse of historic house museums in History News (the quarterly magazine of the American Association for State and Local History) and Forum Journal (the quarterly journal from the National Trust for Historic Preservation) from her research for the book.
Since 2007 Donna has been asked to speak at more than 30 national, regional and statewide conferences about her house museum research and consulting work. Find out about why the house museum model for preserving older homes no longer works and Donna’s take on a broad range of alternatives to save these landmarks for future generations.
