Oil Spill Grant Money Headed to Ocean Springs

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss.–A large chunk of change is headed to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The Ocean Springs History Museum is getting a $194,000 grant from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill funds to completely overhaul it.

“Ocean springs being the oldest french-colonial settlement in the Gulf South, it’s the first settled area in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama,” said museum spokesman Marc Poole when talking about how this was overdue.

Part of the money will go to help the museum become accredited.

“There’s only five accredited museums in the state of Mississippi,” said Poole.

The grant will also pair the museum with the Charnley House that has recently been renovated which the city is promoting.
