Archway museum in Nebraska gets $50,000 grant
Question of the Day
KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - The archway museum that straddles Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska has received a $50,000 grant from a local foundation.
Hastings television station KHAS-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1hgAqCQ ) that The Archway received the grant from the Ron and Carol Cope Foundation to replace exhibit incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs and projectors. The grant also will be used to improve the heating and cooling systems.
The Kearney museum has exhibits that commemorate the Oregon, Mormon and California pioneer trails, and it honors the nation’s highway systems and railroads.
The Archway emerged from bankruptcy in September after it settled more than $20 million in debt with bondholders, vendors and businesses by paying $100,000.
