National Trust for Historic Preservation (Shadows-On-The-Teche)

Log Number: MA-249660-OMS-21

The Shadows-on-the-Teche, a National Trust for Historic Preservation historic site and house museum in New Iberia, Louisiana, will create a Community Digitization Resource Center to better represent, engage, and serve the community—particularly the Iberia Parish African American community. The museum will transform the existing visitor center space into a resource center with open access to computers, scanners, and photography equipment, as well as offer free training workshops for the community on the use of the technology and on how best to organize and digitize their own family history material. The museum will partner with the Iberia African American Historical Society, the Bayou Teche Museum, and the Iberia Parish Library to create and publicize the resource center.
