The Allen County Historical Society has received a $28,800 grant from the Heritage Trust Fund to repair the Allen County Jail Museum.  

Jeff Kluever, executive director of the Allen County Historical Society, said the funds “will help make the jail museum a stable building for the next generation.”

“This $28,800, when combined with the $14,400 donated to the society for jail repairs, means we have $43,200 for the project. We would like to thank those who donated to the Old Jail fundraiser which made this matching grant project possible,” Kluever said.
