THANK YOU 2020 Patrons!

Patrons – You are Amazing and Appreciated! Donations continue to come in for the support of the Fort Recovery Museum’s efforts. We can’t tell you how much those are appreciated. There are big and small things on our “Needs” list! Monument Lighting, Building Repairs, Dead Elm Trees Removal, etc. And if funds were available at some point, we certainly would like to continue the history-themed murals project in Fort Recovery.

Good News - Ohio History Fund grant!

The Fort Recovery Historical Society, in collaboration with Ball State University, has been chosen as one of 10 applications to be funded by the Ohio History Fund. The grant will be used to create an on-line StoryMap of the museum's prehistoric collection. We have always regretted that this impressive display is not handicapped accessible - two flights of stairs separate it from the first floor (which is handicapped accessible). With the creation of this StoryMap, visitors will be able to "view" our prehistoric collection on-line and while at the museum on an iPad. The project is to be completed by summer 2021. Thanks to all those Ohio Taxpayers who checked The Ohio History Fund when paying their income taxes. 

This project made possible in part by a grant from the Ohio History Connection’s History Fund. The History Fund is supported exclusively by voluntary donations of Ohio income tax refunds, sales of Ohio History "mastodon" license plates, and designated gifts to the Ohio History Connection.
