Internship at Canterbury Shaker Village

From: Shery Hack <shack>
Date: Saturday, February 26, 2000
Canterbury Shaker Village (CSV), a National Historic Landmark site
in central New Hampshire with 25 original Shaker buildings, is
seeking interns for preventive conservation and collections
management projects.  Specific projects include conservation
treatment of original plaster, painted finishes and linoleum in the
56-room 1793 Dwelling House, and documentation of collections
through creation of data base records and digital images as part of
a Village-wide collections storage reorganization project.

Canterbury Shaker Village is situated on a rolling hilltop
surrounded by 694 acres of fields, woodlots and ponds.  CSV provides
an ideal location that is only minutes away from lakes and trails,
and only an hour from the White Mountains and the sites and
entertainment of Portsmouth, NH and the New Hampshire seacoast.

Housing will be provided.  Modest stipends may be available to
interns with conservation or collections management training or
experience.  Applicants should be energetic, accustomed to tedious
and physically demanding work, and possess excellent dexterity,
attention to detail and good judgement. Individuals with training
and/or experience with collections and/or architectural conservation
and/or collections management preferred.  A car is required.

Internships are available immediately and for the summer of 2000.
Please send a resume, letter of interest, three references, dates
when you are available and stipend requirements to:
