The Campbell House Museum just started a Twitter account. This is definitely a good move to reach a new and younger audience for an established house museum. Often missing from the conversations about historic preservation on Twitter and other online spaces are local institutions. The gap is generational, as older joining is separated from the over-wired, individualized approaches of young advocates today.
Still, does new media have to remain separate from the old movement? Of course not. The gap must be spanned to keep long-standing preservation organizations viable. The Campbell House Museum recognizes that it’s a two-way street.
Readers, I want to know:
Are you a member of local historic preservation organizations? Which ones?
If not, why not?
