Price City Council members recently met and approved a Certified Legal Government grant for the development of the Bryner Pioneer Museum.
Sue Christensen has been spearheading the Bryner Pioneer Museum project and said the house was an original homestead to the area when it was built in the late 1800’s. She stated it needs to be restored for future generations to know its rich history.
Christensen explained that the house has already undergone some projects, such as replacing the roof and installing a security system, but requires extra funding to finish the renovations and get it running as a museum and public educational facility.
She said the grant, for $10,000, would be used for those purposes.
The Bryner Pioneer Museum will be non-profit and is located at 68 South 100 East in Price.
Public comments for the meeting came from a representative of the Habitat for Humanity in Price. She reminded the council of the services offered from Habitat for Humanity for the elderly, which includes repairs to houses.
