City Museum awards grant to Treadwell Historic Preservation & Restoration Society

The Treadwell Historic Preservation & Restoration Society received the 2017 Juneau History Grant from the Juneau-Douglas City Museum for production of two new interpretive signs at the Treadwell Historic Site.

Featuring historic photos and informational text, the signs will commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the April 21, 1917 cave-in that caused the closure of three of the four mines at Treadwell. One sign will be installed on the upper trail, looking down on the cave-in, and the other sign will be on the lower trail at the edge of the cave-in site. The Society plans to have the signs installed by mid-April for the anniversary. The new signs will complement the 13 other interpretive signs along the trails of the Treadwell Historic Park.

The next deadline to apply for a Juneau History Grant is March 30; however, deadlines occur quarterly, so applicants can also apply by June 30, Sept. 30, or Dec. 31.
