Old Stone House

Log Number: IGSM-245775-OMS-20

The Old Stone House and Washington Park will expand its permanent exhibition to include a digital component that acknowledges the museum's presence on the land of the Lenape. The museum will develop, implement, and assess the impact of the digital exhibition and corresponding education programs. Museum educators will present hands-on classes at the Old Stone House using real and replica artifacts and other learning materials that support the digital exhibition content. Project activities also will include environmental education programs in the 1.5 acres of gardens that contextualize the Lenape heritage of the site using native and useful plants. The project will benefit the museum's 45,000 annual visitors, including 6,000 students in grades K�"12, as well as those who access museum's website.
