New plans for the Athens County Historical Society and Museum
(WOUB) - Heather Reed is not wasting any time.

Reed is the new curator at the Athens County Historical Society and Museum.

Just a few days after being hired she's planning changes.

Reed is transforming some of the two-dimensional exhibits into touchable displays.

Reed says the new exhibits should be finished by late fall.

The Athens County Historical Society is also developing a program to encourage students to take an interest in history.

Another change, the museum is now charging admission.

Year-long memberships are also available.

Reed replaces Joanne Prisley who retired in June after serving as curator for 28 years.
