Warren County Philanthropic Partnership Check Grant

This grant covers half of the $5,000 required for the Mural. We are asking for donations to cover the other half. Please consider a donation for this cause.

Proposed Museum Mural John Parker

John Parker showing his proposal for a Mural on the east side of our Museum Building.  This is a computer generated image of the way it would look on the Museum.  He is also proposing to move the Wind Mill presently on the South side to accent the Mural.  This is not the final design, just a starting point.  The green back ground is not part of the Mural. 

The city of Indianola has purchased the Chaplin property east of the Warren County Historical Society's property.  When they cleared the land it exposed the East Side of the Museum.  This Mural would dress up our building and would draw attention to our Museum.

We have been awarded a $2,500 grant to help pay for the Mural.  We need to raise an additional $2,500.  The back ground paint and moving the wind mill is not included in the $5,000 price of the mural.  We may get the City to pay for moving the wind mill if they go ahead with joining J & K streets.

We are asking the public and local businesses to help and donate for this project.  Please help if you can, even small contributions add up.  We are a 501(C)3 organization so your contribution should be tax deductible.  Be sure to specify that your contribution is for the Mural.  We now accept PayPal as well as charge cards (thru PayPal) just click on the donate button on this page.  You man also send your check to WCHS PO box 256 Indianola, IA 50125.  Thank You for your support.
