Mission

The Whaley Historic House Museum was established with the aim of presenting and preserving the house and property in the period in which the Whaley family lived in the home (1885-1925). We aim to encourage, coordinate, and foster a greater public interest in Flint’s shared cultural heritage and social history through tours, programs, and events. We also seek to collaborate with any organization in Genesee County, Michigan whose purposes and goals are consistent with our own.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The fire that forced our closure in 2015 still haunts us: we still haven’t met our $40,000 fundraising goal and our campaign to deal with the consequences still continues behind the scenes. Additionally, because we were closed for three years and have faced a great deal of organizational instability, we lost our ability to host events and programming and many of our community connections.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Now that the Whaley Historic House Museum has been restored and our doors have reopened after our devastating 2015 fire, we hope to better reintegrate ourselves into the community and increase engagement by creating more public outreach initiatives. Most notably, we hope to do this through cultivating new partnerships and expanding existing collaborations with other local organizations as well as through promoting inclusive community-oriented outreach programs for the coming year in 2020. First and foremost, we intend to offer innovative and unique educational programming and events that are not already readily available in this region on a regular basis. We are also hoping to complete restoration of our greenhouse, which will allow us to create new educational initiatives for our young urban public relating to nutrition, wellness, and sustainable food.

Recently, Davina Kuh Jakobi joined the Whaley Historic House Museum as Executive Director. She is working with the Board to identify areas of growth, write and implement essential policy, create an annual schedule, and create a multi-year strategic plan. Together, we are identifying and applying to relevant grants, restarting popular events, and creating consistent and unique programming. Additionally, we are working to rebuild our organizational connections and reintegrate into the community.

We believe that we will be able to create a positive impact and increase engagement through programs that focus on our shared cultural heritage and social history. With community and donor support, we are absolutely capable of achieving our goals for the coming year.

Following our reopening in 2018, we have been working to reestablish and maintain our connections with local organizations, and the community in general. To do this, we have increased our presence and communication: this past year, we have established consistent open hours, hosted two free community events, restarted our annual newsletter, restarted our monthly themed Victorian tea services, and established a stronger presence online. In 2020, we have identified several key outreach projects and collaborative initiatives, and look forward to accommodating more tours and events at the Whaley Historic House Museum as well as working with other local organizations to create exciting new educational and community outreach programs.
