Wayside Exhibit Maintenance

Although wayside exhibits are among the most durable of all interpretive media and usually require little maintenance, their usefulness can be enhanced and extended by regular inspection and care. We recommend that each exhibit be examined annualy and that the procedures described below be applied to exhibit panels that have been damaged by the elements or by vandals.

Cleaning each exhibit with mild soap and water before inspection can reveal hidden damage, can remove dirt or debris that may cause more damage, and can improve the general appearance of the exhibit. If more extensive repair or replacement is required, assistance is available from Harpers Ferry Center. Contact Susan Haines (phone: 304-535-6033, Email Contact Form). Information and materials to repair or replace exhibit bases are also available.
