[Podcast 1.1] Robert Henning: Why Are Community Museums Important?
The Campbell County Rockpile Museum has been in operation for 45 years, and Robert Henning, its current director, is coming up on his 12th year at the museum. County 17 reporter Kevin Killough discusses with Henning why museums are such an integral part of the community. Henning discusses just what an enormous task it is to catalogue the museum’s collection, the challenge to finding resources for such cultural assets, and how vital volunteers are to keeping it running. He also discusses the pride he and its staff take in all they do to give Campbell County a museum the citizens can be proud of.
