Williams County group expects $200,000 bequest

EDGERTON -- The Williams County Historical Society said it expects to receive at least $200,000 from the estate of Ina Moore of Montpelier, who has bequeathed money to 20 area individuals and organizations.

Mrs. Moore, who died June 4, was a Montpelier native who never had been a member of the historical society, President Mark Kelly said yesterday.

Mr. Kelly said the bequest might allow the historical society to resume plans for its $750,000 expansion, which has been put on hold.

The group is seeking a state grant for the project.
