Machinery museum selects trustees.
The museum also announced it will be the recipient of a $200,000 grant from Save America's Treasures, which will be used for restoration of the 1840s former Robbins & Lawrence Armory that houses its collection of machine tools and related equipment. Save America's Treasures is a national effort to protect America's threatened cultural historic structures, collections, works of art, etc.; it was established in 1998, as a public-private partnership that included the White House, the National Park Service, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Museum executive director Ann Lawless also reports that response to a recent in-depth member survey has been gratifying. Results are being compiled by students at nearby Linden State College and won't be completed until next month. However, a cursory look shows overwhelming support by a nationwide constituency, she says.
