    Significance Assessment

    February 3, 2013 • Museum

    Cathy Day, a Heritage Consultant, is analysing the value of the Denmark Historical Society’s collections for their aesthetic or artistic value, scientific or research potential, and social or spiritual significance. A collection item can help to explain why, how, where and what meaning it has to a place, person or event. Some items may be rare, have important historical links to Denmark and have important interpretive value.

    The assessment process is done in consultation with Volunteer staff and can build knowledge about items from many sources within the collection. The assessment can also be of value when used in tandem with the Society’s Collections Policy.

    DHS Launches its New Website

    February 3, 2013 • Website

    The Denmark Historical Society is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, where members and the wider community can discover more about the Society’s collection, services and current activities.

    Although the Society has had a web presence for many years thanks to the efforts of Ross McGuinness, a review in 2012 by the WA Museum recommended that we create a new website with a modern and fresh look to attract more interest in the Society’s collection and services. So, here it is!

    There is still more work to be done to complete the site, with more pages and information to be added in the near future. Our DHS News will be updated on a regular basis to keep members and the community current with what is happening at the Museum. Please check back regularly to see what’s new.
