Faculty Resources at Wylie House Museum

Tours and Space Use

Wylie House Museum and the Morton C. Bradley, Jr. Education center afford instructors the opportunity to teach in unique learning environments with access to a variety of 19th century domestic artifacts and a rich collection of 19th century documents and photographs. To schedule a tour and/or the classroom in the Morton C. Bradley, Jr. Education Center, please contact the Director, Carey Beam.

Research/Study Projects

Faculty are encouraged to contact museum staff to explore ways in which the museum, historic gardens,or artifact and archival collections may support course content, assignments, and research projects. The Wylie House Museum materials have been studied for a variety of class assignments and semester long research projects. Contact Director, Carey Beam or Outdoor Interpreter, Sherry Wise.

Primary Source Literacy Skills

The Wylie House correspondence and photograph collections are often used to demonstrate research skills related to primary sources. Financial records, maps, and ephemera also support both course content and lend themselves to evaluation, interpretation, and critical thinking skills. The Director, Carey Beam, welcomes the opportunity to work with faculty to understand their course objectives and provide the materials and/or lead instructional sessions which further these skills at the beginner, intermediate, or expert level of research.
