National Endowment for the Humanities pass-through Kentucky Humanities: Flood Relief Emergency Funds $10,000 to the Three Forks Historical Center, Beattyville, KY.
With the pass-through emergency flood relief grant funding from The National Endowment for the Humanities and Kentucky Humanities, the Three Forks Historical Center in Beattyville, KY successfully replaced the heating and air conditioning unites that were destroyed in the horrific flood on March 1st, 2021. The museum, in order to help protect the new system from future flooding, also ordered custom built 36 inch stands fabricated by a local welding company. Funds went toward the stands and the downpayment on the newer more efficient heating and air units.
With an itemized bid, the museum board searched for months trying to find a company who would respond. Finally we found Commonwealth Controls. They were the same company who came to our aid in March of 2021 and did a free inspection of our units.
Thank you Kentucky Endowment of the Humanities and Kentucky Humanities for your support. We would not have been able to complete this Heating and Air project without your support. Temperature control of the 4,000 soft building is vital to the preservation of the artifacts, documents, and photographs inside the museum.
Financial Review of the project:
Grant Funds Spent = $10,000
Museum Funds Spent = $5,947.40
Total project Cost = $15,9470.40
