COSHOCTON – The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is pleased to announce a $1,500 grant from the Coshocton Foundation to upgrade two computer workstations. The upgrade of these workstations enables museum staff and volunteers to perform higher quality work and do so more efficiently. Replaced computers were over seven years old.

The Coshocton Foundation’s mission statement is “Connecting people who care with causes that matter.” Grants are made in the areas of literacy and education, community improvement, the arts, parks and recreation and health and human service. In Fiscal year 2012, the Coshocton Foundation awarded $150,000 in unrestricted grants, $162,000 in restricted funds, and $198,000 in scholarships.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum serves the Coshocton community with exhibits and programs that promote the community, preserve local history and educate young and old. The museum also serves the community as a tourist attraction and preserver of cultural artifacts. JHM is administrated by the Coshocton County Public Library and relies on gifts and support from individuals, businesses and non-profit community agencies like the Coshocton Foundation.
