Champlin funds help preserve our history
According to Dianne Rugh of the historical society, the $27,205 grant was used to purchase and install compact shelving units. These new shelves roll on fixed tracks so that the vault’s storage space is put to more efficient use. And the shelves move easily, so just about anyone can slide the storage to where it is needed.
Also included in the project was the addition of three new flat file storage units. A work area was also created just outside of the vault so that historical society volunteers have a place to keep track of the collections and also research the collections.
The project is of great benefit to the historical society because now more historical artifacts and documents can be stored in the climate-controlled vault.
