Museums, libraries, and historical societies in towns and cities across the nation hold and preserve some of our greatest treasures. Whether they are the papers and possessions of our Founding Families or images and personal items documenting the life stories of ordinary Americans, these collections tell our nation’s story and provide inroads to better understandings of our shared history. These collections are fragile, subject to the decay of time as well as environmental risks and natural disasters. With NEH funding, the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) protects these collections by supporting conservation efforts across the country.
