It’s a bittersweet celebration for the Zane Gray Museum as they acknowledge thirty years in existence and fear it might by their last. The museum holds hundreds of years worth of history in several areas, all of which possess great value to the southeastern region. Although the museum is rich in history and thousands of people visit each year, it might not be enough to keep doors from closing. Recently the museum received notice that funding might not be available to keep the history alive. Alan King, manager of the Zane Grey Museum, says,”We’re being told at this point that if the senate version of the bill passes then we will remain open, but budget debate is still going on and we don’t know the answer of whether or not we’ll come out with an open sign hanging in from of the door.” The museum will receive notification on whether or not they will be able to remain open by July 1st. Until then, community members are encouraged to attend the 30th annual open house celebration. It will be held this Sunday, June 22nd, from 12-5pm and admission is free.
