The Jennings County Historical Society was recently awarded a Heritage Support Grant of $3,647.91 to update current technology needs at the North American House Museum and offer a new genealogy research station for community members and visitors to utilize. Heritage Support Grants are provided by the Indiana Historical Society and made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc.
Museum curator Chris Asher notes that the current technology is not sufficient for maintaining the museum records and is very grateful for the funding and partnership with the Indiana Historical Society that will allow the organization to be more effective in carrying out its mission.
