Inevitably, the promise of a new year leads to reflections of the past. For The Historic New Orleans Collection, 2019 was full of milestones: the opening of its third (and largest) campus, the retirement of a longtime president, the start of a new president’s tenure, and that was within the first six months!
As a history museum, THNOC staff know that while milestones are important, there is much to appreciate in the everyday work, too.
In this online article, 12 museum staffers share their stories of chance encounters, unexpected projects and fascinating discoveries that made 2019 a year to remember.
