Telling the story of the depression and the World War II era is the main focus of the John and Annie Glenn Historic Site and Exploration Center Foundation. Allthough the foundation board has received monies from the state, they are still in need of financial assistance from the county. It is the first historical house in the state that is focused during the era of the depression, and the hope is to create an interactive site with a sense of rich American history, where younger generations can learn while at the same time increasing tourism in the county. The Commissioners granted $20,000 of funding a year for five years to the project. Additional funding will come from the state, and other area businesses. It is estimated that it will cost about $121,000 dollars a year to operate the historical site, and an opening will be held on April 6th of 2002 which marks the Glenn’s 59th wedding anniversary.
