Washington County has committed a generous grant of $3,000,000 as a challenge to the community to raise an additional $3,000,000. To our knowledge, this is unprecedented in the Country. The History Center will continue to include the Old Courthouse, Jail, and Research Center. Plans include adding a permanent exhibit space; the Achievement Hall of Fame, which will tell the stories of Washington County through the eyes of achievement, including the achievements of the County’s women. This will be an integrated effort by all the museum’s departments to highlight the important contributions the people of Washington County have made throughout history. The research center, education and public programming department, along with exhibits and collections will all work towards bringing the County’s unique achievements to the community and visitors to the History Center.
