Seymour Museum Center Selected For Grant

(SEYMOUR) – The Seymour Museum Center has been selected for a Heritage Support Grant by the Indiana Historical Society, SMC board member Rodney Farrow announced on Thursday.

Farrow stated that the grant will help the local 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.

“This is great news,” SMC President Lenny Hauersperger said. The $4,999 grant, the maximum allowed, will be used to help pay for work on the main display room walls.

Donations from individuals and businesses to help pay for work on the museum are welcome and include a year’s SMC membership. Donations may be mailed to the Seymour Museum Center, 220 North Chestnut Street, POB 1138, Seymour IN 47274.

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

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