We designed the Van Kirk Museum website to reflect the identity of the Sparta Historical Society and to appeal to its visitors. In building the new website, we placed ourselves in the shoes of their visitors whom would either be planning a visit to the historic museum located in Sparta NJ or those exploring the homestead with a basic curiosity to discover its history.
The Van Kirk Homestead tells the story of America through local industrious people, and the influences of a growing and evolving nation on them over the past 200 years. It offers a view of day-to-day life through Period Rooms, farming, industry, and recreation in the Sparta Gallery, the History of Mining in Sparta, and the Farm Model Gallery; and, finally, a wider view of events, trends, and interests that have created our collective American Experience in a seasonally Changing Exhibition Gallery.
