One of the best parts of growing up in Connecticut was the history. As a kid, I was always imagining myself back in the Revolutionary era. There were constant reminders of the past, and I found them fascinating. (One of my favorite hobbies was digging holes in my backyard looking for artifacts.) The tough thing is that New England is a thriving part of our economy, which means that there is constant pressure to erase the past so as to build something better. That’s ok to some extent, but history needs to be preserved. Historic New England is a non-profit that does just that. It’s a Boston, MA based “museum of cultural history that collects and preserves buildings, landscapes, and objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present and uses them to keep history alive and to help people develop a deeper understanding and enjoyment of new England life and appreciation for its preservation.”
Historic New England is historic itself–it’s been around since 1910. While they call themselves a museum, I’m not sure that word entirely captures what they do. They manage historic properties, put on a variety of events and programs, maintain significant collections and archives, and even put out a number of publications. But one of the most important things that they do is their preservation work–history gets a lot harder to appreciate when you can’t see it and experience it. If you have any interest at all in New England’s history, then you need to check out Historic New England’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for an Accounts Payable Specialist, a Cataloguer, Waterhouse Wallpaper Cataloguing Project, a Gift Processor/Receptionist, and a Roseland Cottage Guide.
