Keep Funding Available To PA's Historic Sites sign now

Gov. Rendell may be a wonderful promoter of Pennsylvania tourism, but he has little understanding of the deep, intrinsic value of the commonwealth's historic sites.

The governor would rather promote high-tech history at glitzy museums, such as the National Constitution Center and the proposed American Revolution Center, than invest in the interpretation and preservation of the sites where Pennsylvania's rich history actually occurred.

Predictably, Rendell's budget for the 2009 fiscal year proposes a 20 percent cut in funding for the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, which operates more than 20 historical sites across the commonwealth. The reduction would not only close several of those sites, but would also eliminate all of the commission's grant programs, which fund historic preservation, local history, archives and records management, and museum projects, while also supporting the general operations of statewide organizations, museums, and historical societies.

Please sign to show your support in the effort to keep funding available. Without it, many of the places that have been around for hundreds of years will crumble and eventually be forced to close. Don't let Pennsylvania lose it's history!
