Partner Spotlight:

This week we are featuring the work of one of our recent CARES Act grant recipients: The American Independence Museum in Exeter.

Located in Exeter, New Hampshire’s Revolutionary War Capital, the museum serves residents, schoolchildren and area visitors by making our past relevant and fun, encouraging people to appreciate all who fought for our freedom and continue to fight for it.

As a museum with more than 3,000 artifacts, documented research, and curricula geared to children and seniors alike, the staff has been asked by dozens of educators across New Hampshire to develop digital content for remote classrooms. New Hampshire Humanities was thrilled to be able to award a CARES Act grant of $10,000 that will enable the museum to purchase the much-needed software to provide website integration and staff time to develop the content.   Learn more about the museum.
