Veterans Memorial Hall getting an upgrade

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford's Veterans Memorial Hall will get an upgrade thanks to a grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

The Winnebago County Board passed a resolution to accept the $189,069 grant this week. It will completely fund an upgrade to current pneumatic temperature controls to direct digital controls and other improvements to the museum's environment.

The museum's temperature control and air flow systems were found to be outdated in 2007, but a lack of funding prevented upgrades.
