Getting to the museum may be difficult for the next six months due to a major street reconstruction project. East Water Street, or Highway 26, is closed from the blue iron bridge at the east edge of town to Meridian Street, or Highway 27. The only access to the museum will be from the west on Main Street.
Funds Still Needed for Renovation
Work is progressing on our new 3,500 square foot addition at the back of the museum. The cement is poured, the walls, trusses, and roof are on, restrooms and storage areas are framed, and electrical work is beginning. It is exciting to watch the progress being made.
We thank those of you who have generously donated, but we have not yet reached our goal of $1800,000. More funding is still needed. We would appreciated help from any of our members and friends who can do so. Every donation counts, no matter how large or small. Check may be mailed to the museum at 903 East Main Street, Portland, IN 47371. Because we are 501c-3 organization, any donations given toward this project are ax deductible.
