The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board has awarded the WHS with a $600 matching grant to digitize archival records and put them on the Worthington Library’s website, “Worthington Memory”. The Worthington Library and the Worthington Historical Society will partner to match the grant money, and Megan Stypinski, who has been working in our archives, will be working on preparing and uploading records, particularly those in the Johnson-Sessions collection that were donated to the Society in 2012. It is wonderful to be able to make our collections digitally available to both Worthington residents and researchers farther afield with this grant in partnership with the Worthington Library.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has awarded the WHS a $2365 grant to for the Society’s Orange Johnson House Interior Storm Window Replacement project. Upon completion of the window replacement, new inside storm windows with UV protection will be custom fitted to each of the thirteen openings. The Society would like to thank the entire Worthington DAR chapter, and especially Joyce Brand (Chapter President) and Susan Plaisted, for their grant sponsorship and their letter of support.
