Local History

Preserve & Protect Community Collections

Educational institutions of all levels account for national history in their curriculum. While it is incredibly important to provide this level of insight on the notable events of a nation, it’s equally as valuable to preserve, protect, and present evidence of the artifacts that shaped the foundation of your local community.

Local Pieces with Global Significance

A community’s historic treasures can include maps, architectural plans, newspapers, tools, awards, memorabilia, and many other artifacts that uniquely define and outline the development of its growth. Spacesaver understands that the systems in which these items are preserved and displayed should be just as unique as the items themselves. Our storage solutions are designed and manufactured to deliver a customized solution that offers the exact size, capacity, and functionality that your community’s collections require.

Housing the Write Stuff

Storing physical items in a digital age presents an ever-increasing issue for curators. While there is a demand for converting printed materials to a more accessible and consumable format for patrons, some materials are best experienced in their original format.

Playing A Part in Preserving Arts & Sciences

Art is a strong indicator of the culture of a specific area as well as the gradual progression of its residents and their perspective on current events. To help museums and their staff present the largest sample of local art and artifacts to visitors, curators can utilize Spacesaver’s lineup of art racks for hanging art and versatile preservation cabinets for other handmade works or archival storage for photographs.
