NEH Chairman's Emergency Grant: Flood Recovery for 1876 Coralville Schoolhouse

During the floods in the Midwest in June 2008, the 1876 Coraville Schoolhouse managed and interpreted by the Johnson County Historical Society sustained significant water damage. In particular, approximately 50 cubic feet of rare books, county records, and archival materials were affected. This grant will provide funding for transportation and temporary storage of materials, stabilization/freezing, drying, cleaning, deodorizing, and disinfecting. In effect, the project will be to restore these collections to pre-flood condition and make them available again for research and display.
