Director’s T The planning and design seemed endless, yet our focus was toward the light at the end of the tunnel.

message

This T resounding thought was ever present as the Historical Society embarked on another plan, this one much different from the newly launched Strategic Plan of 2014. The Campus Master Plan, S created this past year, rivals its predecessor in content and visualization while providing the nuts and bolts of how our collection of sites and yet to be cultivated landscape will transform into an iconic destination for Rock County.

The Plan is similar to an onion, peeling back layer after layer of detail as the needs of our sites, landscape, operations and most importantly, our visitors are addressed, for the present and the future. Once complete, the Plan will make the collection of six sites into a cohesive History Campus, a process that has caught the attention of our current supporters, new converts and the Wisconsin museum community. Moving forward, it will serve as the blueprint in helping us be entrepreneurial, with a focus on our goals and metrics to gauge our success. As the year moved forward, we added two key position to our staff team, Volunteer/Intern Program Manager & Development Manager; positions solely devoted to resource development and with the Society's expected growth in the coming years, the need will never be greater for human and financial resources. A changing current within the Society during the past year was to think differently about how we present and offer history to the community.

By embracing an entrepreneurial and social mindset, our team is dedicated to improving the quality of life and economic development in Rock County. It may seem difficult to see how history can make these connections or provide this value, but museums and historic sites like ours are quickly adapting this trend to stay relevant and sustainable.

2015 will be remembered by taking the path of courage and confidence with the belief in something not yet complete. Thank you for your belief in us and for your support in the exciting year to come! Sincerely,

Michael Reuter

Executive Director

Education Here at the Rock County Historical Society we highly value learning, especially when it’s done in fun, innovative ways. In 2015, RCHS embarked on many fronts to make our collective history more relatable, accessible, and downright enjoyable to everyone. We were fortunate to have two awesome summer interns who helped us design and implement new programming, some of which you will have the chance to experience this year. We are excited for the course we are currently on and we cannot wait to show you everything we have planned in the years to come!

SO HOW SUCCESSFUL WERE WE IN 2015? THESE NUMBERS SHOULD HELP YOU GET A BETTER PICTURE. 635 third grade students visited the Frances Willard School 19 History Campers came and experienced local history 301 people went on our Walking Tours around Janesville Over 100 people came to the October, Chill at Oak Hill program

VISIT BELOIT

A new, hands-on, free geocaching program, Cache Quest, was created in partnership with Visit Beloit to create and place multiple historic caches around the Beloit and Janesville communities. By using geocaching, an interactive, team building activity, the Society is diving head first into a new strategy of using history to engage new audiences.

rooted in discovering the odd, A new, hands-on exhibition roote unique and special collections of Rock County, Caches & Curious offered that and so much more! The history of how the first museums were created was offered as a framework, but it was the natural, American and local history collections that were on display that captivated and educated audiences of all ages.

Over 40 historic Rock County locations were logged on “the clio”, a new walking tour app we use 33 Cache Quest caches were placed all around Rock County 1 awesome new exhibit, Caches and Curios went up

A new partnership between the Society and local artists created Art with Heart, an arts awareness and social benefit program that uses art to further the mission of a Rock County nonprofit in need. In its inaugural year, Art with Heart supported the mission of Project 16:49, a nonprofit focused on finding shelter for homeless teens. Through the sale of youth art at the Tallman Arts Festival, Art with Heart raised $1,000 towards this important mission. 8

Volunteer and Internship Program For almost 70 years, RCHS has relied on the passionate, dedicated work of volunteers to preserve and interpret the history of Rock County. As we move into an exciting new chapter of our development and growth as an organization, our volunteers are a large part of our plans for the future. To ensure that our volunteers and interns receive the training and support that they need as the organization grows, RCHS hired their first Volunteer and Internship Program Manager, whose sole focus would be volunteers and interns.

Because of our volunteer’s efforts in 2015, we gave over 100 tours of the Lincoln-Tallman House, helped 675 people discover their own history in the Archives, welcomed over 3,500 people to our special events, and shared the rich history of Rock County with 435 local school children. Giving over 6,000 hours, our volunteers have supported us with their talents and the gift of their time. In turn, RCHS is able to give back to the community; below are just two examples of our many volunteers, and what they both give as well as receive from RCHS:

Toni • One of the regular Front Desk Volunteers, Toni, is not only a cheerful resource, she is also an example of the kind of opportunity our Volunteer Program can provide to the

community. In her time here, Toni has advanced her skills in office management, and plans to take classes this fall to earn her Associates degree. Because of her dedication and tenacious perusal of new tasks, we as a staff were able to help her grow, and to give her new projects that challenged her to learn new skills.

Jonathan • When Jonathan arrived at RCHS, he knew that he wanted to contribute, but was unsure of where he would fit into our program. After talking with the Education Curator, we decided to create a role for him that would allow him to be a part of our volunteer team, but also help him to further his own plans of earning his Masters in Public History. With Jonathan’s help, we were able to develop content for our Help Wanted tour, and he now has a deeper understanding of tour development as well as a very personal experience with museum work. Both Jonathan and Toni exemplify the power of our program in the community – RCHS is a place where people can share and gain skills, as well as connect with others. Our volunteers help the RCHS staff to reach their goals and also allow us to give back to the Rock County community in meaningful and powerful ways.

STER PLAN CAMPUS MA

Campus Master Plan We

focused

our

resources

on

one

overriding project, the Campus Master Plan. The first main goal out of our Strategic

Plan, the Plan was created with numerous

contributions from a variety of RCHS stakeholders, in partnership with Madison

based architecture firm, Vandenwalle &

Associates. Its purpose was simple, to provide innovative design concepts to the

site that complimented the qualities of architecture and landscape to create a

stunning, yet functional history campus.

Through six overlays and five site plans, the

Campus Master Plan defines detail and depth in the campus' vision while blending

the historic and contemporary features. The Campus Master Plan is in the blueprint

from which physical changes to the campus will occur.

operatons The day to day operations of a five building campus is vast, and after not

having an Operations Manager on staff for the majority of 2015, it became clear that having someone to head that department was necessary.

Although I had been doing many various operational duties to fill voids, I was

officially offered the position of Operations Manager in January 2016. Despite

there being no official department head, and me being out of the office for four months on maternity leave, the department had a successful 2015.

In the Gift shop we added 16 new and diverse items and generated a revenue of $3,802.38

We had 168 members renew their RCHS memberships, and 28 new members join, for a total membership revenue of $10,810

Although the road construction on Jackson Street impacted our visitor metrics

in the summer months, we had over 1000 school children through the house,

along with 2000 general guests, for a total revenue of $11,522.50. We could

not have welcomed this many school children and guests to the campus

without our wonderful interpreters, both paid and volunteer. They all have a

passion for the Lincoln-Tallman House that makes them invaluable in providing guests with a memorable tour of our campus!

Marketing & rentals

The Marketing and Outreach Coordinator, Meghan Walker, had her first intern in the summer of 2015. An wonderfully

creative and innovative person, Bonnie Willison brought so many great ideas to the table that the different social

media channels that RCHS was marketing through saw an incredible increase in followers over the course of a single

month. The official RCHS Facebook page averaged 10-20 “likes” per month and, after Bonnie devoting 40 hours a

week to marketing specifically through social media, RCHS saw 100 new “likes” for each month that Bonnie was interning.

Meghan also got to test new marketing waters in 2015.

Using a portion of the $5,000 funds from a JACVB Tourism Marketing Grant, Meghan explored bus and television advertising for the first time for the Holiday Tours of the

Lincoln-Tallman House and for the Tallman Arts Festival.
