According to CentralMaine.com, the L.C. Bates Museum at Good Will-Hinckley has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for their preservation efforts.

This isn't the L.C. Bates Museums' first grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. They've received several grants of all amounts over the past several years.

The amazing grant is for $4,762 and will give the museum the funds to train staff and volunteers; it will also allow the museum to purchase shelving to better store artifacts at the museum.

The National Endowment for the Humanities grant gives out a total of $28.4 million to 239 museums throughout the United States.

The L.C. Bates Museum is located at 14 Easler Rd in Hinkley, Maine, and offers a wide range of exhibits. From local historical artifacts to history about Good Will-Hinckley. Unfortunately, the museum is closed for the time being due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but they are still offering to-go kits for educational purposes.
