For the past month, we have been very thankful to have Rachel Blomquist, a native of Alexandria, LA and Public Historian, interning at our museum. Rachel is currently studying to get her Master’s degree in Public History from the  University of Louisiana at Lafayette .

Since June, Rachel has been hard at work cataloging our collections. She has a keen eye for detail and a great understanding of history, and has done so much to make sure our collections are well kept and organized!
