Although founded in hope with a visit by the King of Sweden, the New Sweden Colonial Farmstead fell into a period of decline. The collection was lost to public access for nearly two decades. This poster tells the story of the recovery of this historic collection despite major financial obstacles. The effort to preserve this collection during the great recession is a case study in successful archives management.
