2020 Annual Appeal

The Dane County Historical Society has established two exciting new goals. Our first is to digitize our collection as much as possible, making our materials increasingly available and relevant. Digitizing and posting our Madison Mozart Club collection was the first significant step in that direction. Below is just one example to get a glimpse into the MCC collection.

Our second goal is to apply best practices in maintaining our collections, and furthering that goal led to the exciting project of restoring our 1910 Dane County Plat Map. Below are photos of the plat map before and after restoration.

The map had several full-length rips that had to be hand-stitched.
