Seymour museum receives $4,999 grant


Seymour Museum Center recently was selected for a $4,999 heritage support grant by the Indiana Historical Society.

The grant will help the museum continue work on the interior of the former post office and city hall on the southeast corner of Chestnut and Third streets in historic downtown Seymour, board member Rodney Farrow said in a news release issued Thursday.

Board President Lenny Hauersperger said the grant — the maximum allowed — will be used to help pay for work on the main display room walls.

"This is great news," Hauersperger said.

Donations from individuals and businesses to help pay for work on the museum are welcome and include a year’s Seymour Museum Center membership. Donations may be mailed to Seymour Museum Center, 220 N. Chestnut St., P.O. Box 1138, Seymour, IN 47274.

Concentrating on people, places and events especially connected to the area’s transportation and communication history, the museum aims to open windows on the city’s past, present and future.

Heritage support grants are provided by the Indiana Historical Society and made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc.
