Clock Restoration Update: As 2023 progresses, so does restoration on the 1882 Seth Thomas #18 clock that for 70 years ticked away on top of the Portage County Courthouse. You can read all about it here.
The Museum Boiler
Last Fall, the main boiler for the museum became cracked and required replacement and cost the society $8,500 in unexpected repairs. Since we operate mostly on donations and membership dues, this expense consumed nearly half of our annual budget. Large unforeseen expenses like this hinder our ability to stay open in the future.
We are asking for donations to help get us back on track financially for 2021 through a GoFundMe. Click HERE to visit the fundraiser.
We would like to acknowledge and thank Blind and Sons for donating labor and parts and making the boiler replacement expedient and simple.
If you prefer to make a donation via check you can mail us directly at 6549 N Chestnut Street Ravenna, Ohio 44266. Please let us know if you would like a letter documenting the gift for tax purposes.
