For many years, Landmark has been one of the major historical sites of our area where tourists and locals can visit, but it may soon have to close its gates for good. Tom Parks, Vice President of the board of governing the park, asked commissioners at their meeting yesterday, to consider donating at least fifty thousand dollars to help keep the facility up and running. Landmark was designated as an agricultural museum by the state, making it possible for the park to receive grant funding, but last year`s budget cuts put a squeeze on those funds. Mr. Parks stated that the park is in danger of losing their farm manager, and the centerpiece of the park is a 1900`s era farm sted and the props. State money made up a third of the park`s operating revenue. Officials say if the park closes, tourism in the region will decline.
