Tree thumbnailCreating engaging historic house interpretation that really connects with your audience begins with a solid understanding of your site’s important stories.

Guest speaker Nancy Bryk shows how to develop a research plan including research on the historical characters who lived in the house, the important events that took place there, and changes in the site over time.

She discusses where and how to look for this information and then how to use worksheets to develop your interpretive plan based on that research.
