In 2019, the museum was awarded a Small Museum Grant funded through the Division of Arkansas Heritage. The goals were numerous, but in a nutshell, it was to gain a Resource Room added-value component achieved with new equipment, initial operating funds, and archival materials to improve the ongoing archival process of our priceless documents, photos, and audio/video recordings. The success of fulfilling the grant objectives have been seen from the beginning and except during the downtime of 2020 with the pandemic, the museum has put these new resources to right-to-work. Early on, the Harrison Junior High EAST Club volunteered their time on the equipment to aid in preservation and now, with the school club already showing new interest in continuing their previous efforts, we expect calls soon to begin again. So many other projects are underway also. Thank you Division of Arkansas Heritage and the hard work of our volunteers who made this new service to the community possible!
