To Whom It May Concern:

The Henry County Historical Society endorses the efforts to save, renovate and restore the historic John L. Johnson auditorium and possibly the adjacent east-west wing of the former elementary school building. The building, built in the early l930’s, represents the last dedicated school auditorium in Henry County. The arts have played an integral role in the history of our region. We would like to see that continue with the establishment of the Napoleon Civic Center. The center would be an epicenter for the arts in this area. The HCHS endorses the renovation and restoration of John L. Johnson auditorium and offers their support in this project.
