THE FAIRFIELD COUNTY HERITAGE ASSOCIATION
RECEIVES CAPITAL FUNDING
The Fairfield Heritage Association (FCHA) will receive funding from the state’s capital improvement budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. FCHA submitted three project proposals to the state, and all were included in the final appropriations bill that was signed by Governor Kasich last Wednesday.
Projects at the Sherman House and Georgian Museums, both operated by FCHA, include adapting existing spaces in the historic houses to better facilitate the storage of museum collections. The total funding for both projects is $65,000.
“Almost every historic house museum in the country has limited space, and maintaining appropriate temperature and humidity for collections is difficult,” said Andrea Brookover, FCHA Executive Director. “This funding enables us to be better stewards of our properties and collections.”
