Q&A with Legacy Project Coordinator Joanna Hahn

What do you consider the key accomplishment of your Legacy Project?

  • Dec. 10 and 11 we officially opened the Levi and Catharine Coffin State Historic Site Interpretive Center. This free event saw 129 visitors over two days. It was great to see so many from the local community, and county, come out to see our beautiful new museum that now is part of the visit to the site.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.

  • Most who visited were very impressed. The community of Fountain City watched this building for two years as it was constructed and many were itching to see it once it was opened. Visitors remarked over and over again that the building was much more than they expected and are proud to see it as part of their community.
