I once heard someone say, “my favorite color is October.” Here in New England, that attitude is quite understandable this time of year. The color palette of October can be a sight to see, but concealed under all that color is the thick, brown, spongy, and delicious flesh of an often-missed mushroom: the birch bolete.

The History Trust: Making the Past Accessible

Key Discussion Points:
Overview of the mission and collections of each historical society/museum, touching on how they manage those collections/archival materials, how they share them with the public.
How mission for each organization translates into a meaningful connection between a community member and some element of local history that you have “protected” or brought to light.
What are the challenges that you face as you think about keeping those materials accessible in the long-term?
Background and rationale for Friends of Island History and the concept of a “history trust”
What are the key components of the proposed History Trust? What would each participant gain through participating? What are challenges you are wrestling with?
