LANCASTER – If you ever wondered what life in Lancaster might have been like in the days after the Civil War, one new project at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio may give you a glimpse at history.

DACO was one of 14 organizations in Ohio to receive Ohio History Fund grants.

The grant is distributed by the Ohio History Connection. DACO will use the $7,735 for the Rising Family Digitization Project. The center received a collection of photos and documents from family members of the Rising, Reece and Peters families in the summer of 2020. The project will focus on digitizing parts of the collection for online accessibility.

Jason Crabill, DACO executive director, explained the center is grateful to get “a piece of Lancaster’s history,” but the center isn’t designed to store or display the documents.
