Fairfield Museum, 1960's
The museum was built, by the Board of Home Missions, to include a small residence, so that the curator could live on the premises and perhaps serve the Moraviantown charge as well. The former Fairfield Trust committee was dissolved and the assets turned over to the Board to be used in the construction of the building. When received, these amounted to $8,803.17. In order to complete the project, it was necessary for the Board of Home missions to make a grant of $18,000. Together the two amounts built the museum and the garage, and provided the necessary furnishings.
