Historic St. Mary’s City moved into a new facility to support its mission as well as its partnership with St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Careful planning was needed to design a building that accommodates two institutions with different but shared missions. The partners spent two years developing an agreement for use and management of the facility. Moving into the building presented challenges, such as creating a database system of all artifacts boxes, developing a system of organization, and actually moving the collection.
