IL Humanities Grant

Great News! Once again, MTPA is the fortunate recipient of a grant from IL Humanities!

This grant will cover the cost of utilities and insurance throughout the coming year.

With this grant, we have the opportunity to work on researching and preparing programs on local history. In addition to offering these programs at the museum, we hope to take these programs to the local middle school in support of teaching local history as mandated by the IL State Board of Education. Magnolia Twp. and indeed all of Putnam County has such a rich history; students need to learn about where they are living and respect those who settled and built the community they have the privilege to call home.

We are very grateful to IL Humanities!
