“We Were There” Curator
An educational center was part of the original vision for The Highground. The center would educate its visitors about the cost of war, “the human cost”. With the Parks neighbors deciding to sell, The Highground needing to expand to accommodate more visitors, and unexpected grants becoming available, this learning center has become a reality.
Today, The Highground Museum encompasses a library filled with over 4,000 books covering military history. Its garage is a place for our volunteers to get their lunches during work weeks, and the gallery, media room and meeting room holds many of the different exhibits. The Museum Coordinator is responsible for the daily operations, donations including artifacts and library materials, and exhibit setup and removal. The coordinator also researches, evaluates and books the incoming exhibits.
We are always looking for more displays! Please let us know if you have something you are willing to share or something specific you would like to see in the museum.
