I have experience developing exhibits, surveying historic resources, conducting oral history interviews, editing sound and video, managing Facebook pages, creating web content, and planning events (from summer camps to open houses). When I’m not sharing my love of history with the public, you can find me hanging out with my boyfriend Kenny, whippin’ up some vegetarian magic in the kitchen, hiking in the wild and wonderful, or biking along the Mon River Rail Trail.
My big goals at Old Hemlock are to place the house in the National Register of Historic Places and to start an oral history program, thereby further preserving the legacy of George and Kay. I’ll be keeping a blog about my year at Old Hemlock, so make sure to check in! Read Eliza’s blog HERE!
