Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

HSUMD seeks to find and implement more complete and longer-lasting protection of its historical artifacts and materials through a combination of environmental controls (temperature, humidity, etc.) and/or digitization of printed records. For example, we have extensive newspaper archives -- going back to the establishment of the central town of our region of Kern County. Newsprint, though bound, is volatile and subject to deterioration and subsequent irreplaceable loss of contemporaneous history.

Veterans Support and Engagement

HSUMD hosts a monthly free Veterans Breakfast for veterans and their spouses/guardians; it hosts a regular meeting of a Combat Stress Support Group under the guidance of a psychologist; it is a registered Blue Star Museum; it is the owner of the region's Veterans memorial Building, dedicated to collecting, preserving and displaying the artifacts and stories of service and sacrifice of local veterans.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HSUMD seeks to incorporate more modern and complete protection of its historical printed materials, in order to ensure its survival and usefulness for future generations.

HSUMD operates with no paid employees, and directs all donations and other proceeds toward operating and preserving historical buildings. Historical physical artifacts are preserved adequately, but printed materials, such as newsprint materials, are in jeopardy, and preservation of those materials require more funding than is currently available. Suitable and available grants are being sought to be used on this critical endeavor to protect these irreplaceable historical artifacts.
