The second annual conference in Kykuit focused on the sustainability of historic sites.
Standards, best practices, being models of innovation and success, alternative uses for historic sites, and expectations of historic sites and funders were the focus of the three day meeting.
At the conclusion of the Kykuit summit, participants developed a draft list of findings and recommendations.
These focused not only on the financial sustainability of historic sites but also on their ongoing ability to serve the community, steward collections and property, and provide professional levels of operations and accomplishments.
Discussions such as the ones at Kykuit arouse passions as history professionals and give opportunities to find solutions in a time of change and transition.
