Readers of The Tribune weighed in on our Facebook page about efforts to turn the close Quinn Chapel AME church into a local Black history museum. Here is a sampling of comments:

“You should use the John Gee Historical museum in the AME church in Gallipolis as a template. (…) They are also using ARC funding. We were there Saturday. It’s amazing and preserves all the historical accomplishments of the community.”
