Save America's Treasures

The University of Kentucky will use the funds to improve environmental conditions of the 10,250 sq ft collections storage area of the William S. Webb Museum of Anthropology. The museum houses a world-renowned archaeological collection documenting Kentucky's cultural past from more than 254 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including Native American, Revolutionary War-, and Civil War-era sites. The improvements will ensure the preservation of these significant collections for future scholarly research and the mutual benefit of all citizens interested in cultural heritage. The project will be matched with $445,327 in non-federal share.
