Humanities Texas help museums survive through COVID-19

Tales and Trails

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Nocona Tales & Trails Museum received $5,000 in grant money from Humanities Texas to help with some of the financial loss the museum experienced while closed due to COVID-19.

The museum specializes in Native Americand, oil, gas and Nocona’s rich history.

While the museum says it did use the time spent closed completing a new exhibit, they still had to cancel almost all of their annual fundraisers.

“We’re concentrating on using Texoma Gives, hoping membership will increase and asking those who sponsor our annual event if they will make donations in a similar amount,” said Tracey Mesler, President of Tales & Trails Museum.

The Tales & Trails Museum wasn’t the only museum in the community to receive grants from Humanities Texas.

The Wichita Falls Museum of North Texas, The Jack County Museum and The Red River Valley Museum in Vernon all received grants in varying amounts to help out during the pandemic.
