The Ware-Lyndon House Committee is pleased to announce the launch of an online digital inventory of decorative objects on display in the Ware-Lyndon Historic House Museum. Part of Historic Athens, this committee’s mission is to promote preservation and provide on-going education surrounding the Ware-Lyndon House, its collection and history.
Three years in the making, the eight-member House Committee worked together with citizens involved in the rehabilitation of the historic house and Lyndon House Arts Center staff. They collected records from original documents, loan agreements, gifts and other historic material. This research allowed the group to put together a concise image bank of the collection. The online digital inventory platform is available free by visiting warelyndonhouse.omeka.net.
The Ware-Lyndon House Committee worked with Kristy Darby, a digital specialist, who designed and built the website. David Hammond provided all the photography which includes over 500 images of decorative objects and Teresa Friedlander provided digital expertise to this major project. The online digital inventory is dynamic and continues to be updated as new research is revealed.
