Looking to the Future to Share the Past

At the Marshall County Community Foundation, we understand how important it is to share and preserve the rich history of our county. That is why we supported the Marshall County Historical Society & Museum in the fall 2021 Community Fund grant round with funding to improve their audio-visual systems. The grant award was $8,927.

"This grant has improved the quality of our programming by making possible much brighter, clearer visual images, and crisper, more evenly distributed sound", said former museum Executive Director Linda Rippy. "Presenters using the new system will benefit too, as their carefully crafted PowerPoint presentations or videos can be displayed to greatest advantage. The new system is easy to use and does not necessarily require a staff person to operate it. In addition, it takes up less space since a projector and cart no longer need to extend out into the room."

“The project moved us up 15 years in terms of technology and ease of use,” continued Rippy. “The funded equipment has the potential to take us years into the future. We’re grateful!”

Stop in and tour the museum to see the new tech in action and uncover Marshall County’s storied past.
