Thank you, Durham!Posted on July 27, 2012
This time last week we were making final preparations to host our first event at the History Hub. And what an event it was! I’m posting a thank you from us to you that ran in the Herald-Sun this week:
Thank you, Durham, for turning out in droves for the History Hub’s Open House last Friday night. Despite several bouts of rain, more than 500 visitors stopped by to look at exhibit plans for this first home of the Museum of Durham History.
The rainbow of post-it note comments on the designer renderings provided lots of good ideas and feedback on the vision of Durham’s first history museum – all part of the two-way conversation we’ll continue in months to come. The event marked our first major gathering of public input, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Thanks also to the generous help of local businesses and musicians who provided refreshments and entertainment. We’re lucky to be part of such a vibrant, supportive community, indicative of the renaissance taking shape in downtown Durham.
Stay tuned, Durham. Much more to come.
Katie Spencer, Executive Director, MoDH
