Press Release, August 17, 2015
Stephen Burlingame, Chairman of The Chatham Historical Society Board of Trustees, announced the appointment of local Chatham resident and business owner, Danielle Jeanloz, as the new Executive Director for the Atwood House & Museum.
Ms. Jeanloz’ interest in local history began when she researched and co-authored a book on Chatham in 1999, using antique postcards and photographs. She also focused on town history when she helped organize a year-long celebration of Chatham’s 300th Anniversary. Her training in paper conservation and restoration for her family maps business has helped her appreciate the museum’s valuable collection of historical documents.
Ms. Jeanloz first visited Chatham forty years ago and moved to Cape Cod full time in 2004. She served as Executive Director at the Chatham Chamber of Commerce which helped her get to know the Chatham community quickly. She then joined her family businesses, before assuming the museum position.
During the past ten years, Jeanloz has held positions on the Board of the Cape Cod Antique Dealers Association, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod Board, First Night Chatham Committee, UUMH Chatham Board of Trustees and the Chatham Town Committee coordinating the Independence Day Parade. She has managed several websites for local non-profit groups, as well as administrating their social media. As part of their efforts to support historical conservation, she and her husband restored their 225 year Eldredge farmhouse on Main Street in Chatham for which they won a Historic Preservation Award in 2006.
Danielle Jeanloz plans to bring her many years of experience in marketing and publicity to the Museum. “The Atwood House & Museum is a remarkable Chatham cultural resource located in the Chatham Historic District, near both the Village Center and Stage Harbor,” explains Jeanloz. “The museum’s 120 dedicated volunteers provide a diverse personal experience and knowledge in running museum programs, producing exhibits, and coordinating the lecture series, gift shop, research library, main building and an example of a North Beach Camp. We are fortunate to have such a talented team. I look forward to being a part of this successful group.”
Owned and operated by the Chatham Historical Society, The Atwood House & Museum is one Chatham’s oldest homes, built in the 1750’s, and dedicated to preserving Chatham’s history. The museum is a year around institution offering exhibits in the summer and fall, a popular lecture series, and a research facility.
