Time For A Christmas Miracle! The Jimmy Stewart Museum Facing Rough Financial Times!

It would be such a shame to see this place close down!

He truly was such a wonderful man, and an icon who should not be forgotten!

The Jimmy Stuart Museum, which is located in the actor's hometown of Indiana, PA, is facing serious financial hardship, and could close down if the cash flow doesn't increase!

Executive director Timothy Harley, who is the museum's only full-time employee, says:

“It’s touch and go right now. We need a cash influx to help us get through this challenging time. We used to see 10 to 15 charter bookings per month in September and October. This year, we did not have five between both months combined. Attendance in 2009 was 6,500 and this year it's down to about 5,000. Plus, our state funding has dropped from $5,500 per year to $1,400.”

Museum host Pat Ward continues:

“This museum’s not just about Jimmy Stewart — it’s about America. His life takes us through the life of The Greatest Generation.”

Very true! The man gave up his career to go and serve his country!

We wonder how many actors would do the same in today's time!
