BIG Changes at our Museum

Our museum will open this 2015 season with new carpeting in the upper level.
Thanks to a $3500.00 grant from South Central Power's RoundUp Grant program, a $3000 donation from the Violet Township Trustees and funding from our members we were able to fund the project.

Thank you to Solomons Carpet Sales & Services of Pickerington for getting it done so quickly.

Stop by the museum to see the final results!
