Alabama Veterans Museum in Athens receives $1 million grant

ATHENS — The Alabama Veterans Museum has been awarded a $1 million grant from the state that will allow it to proceed with the second phase of renovations to the museum.

A museum press release says the renovations will include upgrading the air conditioning system and meeting venue, repairing the roof, installing new signage and creating a Veterans Park in front of the museum.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors of the museum we would like to thank Senator Tom Butler, Senator Arthur Orr, Senator Tim Melson, Senator Larry Stutts, Representative Danny Crawford, Representative Lynn Greer, Representative Mac McCutcheon, Representative Andy Whitt, and Representative Parker Duncan Moore.  Without their support this would not have been possible,” the press release stated.

It also stated that as a founding board member, Sen. Tom Butler was instrumental in achieving the dream and vision of the original Alabama Veterans Museum concept. His support spans over 20 years and he continues to be influential in the Museum’s success.

State Rep. Parker Moore, R-Hartselle, added the grant comes from a supplemental approval to the state budget made by Gov. Kay Ivey after she attended the museum’s open house last year.

The Alabama Veterans Museum is the number one tourist attraction in Limestone County. You can visit their website at www.alabamaveteransmuseum.com for more information.
