LDS woman receives national award for historic preservation
Julene Merrill received the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution's medal for historic preservation Monday, May 16.
Merrill, who is a member of the LDS Church, helped restore, repair, obtain grant money, inventory and upgrade the Tooele Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum, 39 East Vine Street, Tooele, Utah, according to information from the Princess Timpanogos Chapter of the National Daughters of the American Revolution.
She has also compiled and digitized the history of the museum and the records on the pioneers in Tooele, Utah, among other accomplishments and outreach efforts.
Chapter officials say Merrill is likely the first Utahn to receive this national award.
Merrill serves as a counselor in her ward's Relief Society.
