Seymour Museum Center awarded grant


Seymour Museum Center has been awarded a Heritage Support Grant in the amount of $4,999.

The funding will be used for repairing the marble floor in the museum’s foyer and to install a KnoxBox on the exterior of the building allowing access to public safety personnel in the event of emergencies.

The center is located in historic downtown Seymour at the southeast corner of Third and Chestnut streets.

Museum Board President Lenny Hauersperger said the board has been engaged in extensive renovation of the center with a goal of providing the community with a safe and handsome place to showcase Seymour’s colorful history.

“Grants from several local individuals, groups and organizations have assisted us with these expenses. This Heritage Support Grant will allow us to make additional improvements to the museum.” Hauersperger said. “We are thankful for the generous support that we have received from individuals and organizations that are interested in preservation of Seymour’s history.”

The center recently launched a capital campaign to raise needed funds for additional renovation work. Contributions to the capital campaign can be mailed to Seymour Museum Center, P.O. Box 1138, Seymour, IN 47274.

Heritage Support Grants are provided by the Indiana Historical Society and made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc.
