Ohio Historical Society Funding Threatened by Proposed Budget Cuts

The National Trust has galvanized its membership and preservation advocates in Ohio asking them to contact their legislators in support of funding for the Ohio Historical Society (OHS). The Ohio Senate recently slashed funding for the Society, following years of state disinvestment in history and preservation. The Senate changes cut funding for the Society from $13.8 million two years ago to $10 million for Fiscal Years 2010-11. This represents the lowest allocation of state funding for the Society since 1994 ($9.6 million, or $13.8 million in inflation-adjusted funding). Included in the cuts were:

  • $750,000 funding for the 58 historic sites and museums under the care of OHS and its local site;
  • teacher training and educational programs that leverage federal funding;
  • funding for the Local History Office, which serves more than 800 local historical organizations;
  • support for National History Day in Ohio - a national program that originated in Ohio;
  • staffing for the Civil War anniversary (2011-2015) initiative; and,
  • the state historical markers program for 1,200 of historic sites across Ohio.

In addition, a “Rally for History” in support of restoring funding to the Historical Society was held on June 11th.
