UCHS Awarded $15,000 Grant

Umatilla County Historical Society secures $15,000 towards maintaining museum.

Pendleton, OR – Union Pacific Railroad awarded $15,000 to the Umatilla County Historical Society (UCHS) to support ongoing maintenance and upgrades to the Heritage Station Museum in Pendleton, OR.

Union Pacific’s Community Ties Giving Program provides small- and medium-sized grants that align with the railroad’s priority cause areas in safety, workforce development and community spaces.

UCHS’s capital improvements project outlines much needed improvements to the museum, with a focus on safety and visitor experience. Renovations will include replacement of doors to improve accessibility and security, as well as a redesign of the admissions area to create a more welcoming atmosphere in the museum.

The capital improvements project, with funding from the Union Pacific Community Ties Giving Program, will help ensure that the Heritage Station Museum continues to be a vibrant community space that contributes to the distinct identity of Pendleton, and is a destination for families and visitors to this region.
