History at Home: Preserving Your Treasures

February 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Your area museums are bringing the history right into your home with Alexandria Community Education’s virtual webinar series, “History at Home.” Join the Douglas County Historical Society, Legacy of the Lakes Museum and Runestone Museum Foundation as “Keep History Alive” on Thursday nights in February!


There are many things that can cause some of our more precious items to deteriorate faster than we would like. Join Legacy of the Lakes Museum’s Kaci Johnson as she explains agents of deterioration and how best to protect and preserve the historical treasures in your home. From photographs to textiles, she’ll give tips and tricks to help your items last for future generations to enjoy.


Other webinars in this series:
Feb. 4 – “What To Do When You Find an Artifact”
