Through a $500 grant from Westar Energy, Jeff Kluever will be able to take never before seen artifacts from the Allen County Historical Museum into Allen County classrooms.

“I am so excited to be able to preserve and transport Civil War documents, letters and slave transactions into the classrooms,” said Kluever, Allen County Historical Society executive director.

Most documents from the Civil War are written in pencil. Without special archival containers these documents would be destroyed when exposed to the air and sunlight, Kluever said.
