The National Churchill Museum in Fulton has received a $2,483 state grant to preserve its library collections.
The grant was provided by Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander for the museum to catalog, inventory and re-house library collections at Westminster College and at the Winston Churchill Memorial & Library.
The museum, which is located on the campus of Westminster College, is one of 17 historical records repositories in the state awarded funding through the Missouri Historical Records Grant Program.
The competitive grant program is supervised by the Missouri State Archives, a division of Kander’s office.
“Our history can be found in communities throughout the state, not just at the Missouri State Archives,” Kander said. “We offer this grant program to assist local institutions to help preserve Missouri’s past for future generations.”
Kander said the Missouri Historical Records Grant Program offers grants to public and private records repositories in order to assure preservation and access by the public.
