National Park Service Awards Grants to Support Historic Preservation through Technology
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

Washington – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced the award of two grants totaling $73,650 from the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training to assist with projects using science and technology for historic preservation.  The projects develop new technologies or adapt existing technologies to preserve our nation’s cultural resources. 

Cornell University’s grant project will map the site of the 1964 New York World’s Fair using state-of-the art 3D, GIS and procedural molding, the Louisiana Museum Foundation will use their award to develop a protocol for treating salt-damaged brick masonry.

“Harnessing new technologies to preserve our nation’s historic resources is an important part of the National Park Service’s mission to protect and share the special places that Americans have entrusted to us,” Director Jarvis said.  “We are pleased to provide assistance for these innovative projects that are bringing the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past.”

Since 1994, the National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training in Natchitoches, Louisiana has funded science and technology projects in historic preservation.  The center strives to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve prehistoric and historic resources throughout the United States.
