Woodburn Museum and Bungalow Theater recently received a grant that will help with its ongoing restoration.

{img:338414]The Woodburn Museum and Bungalow Theatre downtown was recently named as one of a dozen statewide projects to receive grant funds from the Oregon Heritage Commission.

The commission awarded a total of $75,722 to the various museums, with individual grants ranging from $2,148 to $8,000. The Woodburn grant was commissioned through the city of Woodburn and will be used to develop additional exhibits and reinstall other exhibits.

Last fall the venue received a Oregon Cultural Trust grant in the amount of $24,962 to further boost the renovation project.

Other entities receiving grants include Cape Blanco Heritage Society, Columbia River Maritime Museum, Coos County Historical Society, Dufur Historical Society, Eugene Debbs Potts Society, High Desert Museum, Pacific Railroad Preservation Association, Rainier Oregon Historical Museum, Springfield Museum, Museum at Warm Springs and Yaquina Pacific Railroad Historical Society.

Projects range from building repairs to digitizing historic newspapers and photos.

The museum grant program is offered annually by the Oregon Heritage Commission, part of the Oregon Heritage program at Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD). The grant program began in 1965 when only 24 organizations were eligible for the program. The grant is funded by lottery dollars.
