Specialized space for artifacts

Eddie Dubesko, left, of the Cleveland County maintenance department, and Cissy Anklam survey the new “home” of historical artifacts relocated from an earlier museum in the old courthouse building. The maintenance department handled preparation of the site to provide appropriate storage, environment, access, and security for the thousands of artifacts donated for the former museum.
Ms. Anklam is coordinator of the design team developing a master plan for the Earl Scruggs Center for Songs and Stories of the Carolina Foothills. The plan will be presented next week. She is a professional museum planner and formerly directed exhibit design and educational programming for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
The new storage site will provide space for the History Committee of Destination Cleveland County to finish its work of documenting the artifacts and in the future enable ready selection of objects for rotating displays in the Earl Scruggs Center to be located in the old courthouse building following its interior renovation.
