SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – A Lowcountry museum could soon close its doors.
The Summerville-Dorchester Museum, which opened in 1992 to tell the story of the town’s past, says it only has enough money to stay open until June.
Museum leaders say they have been relying on reserve funds but now the money has been depleted.
Board members say they submitted an application requesting funds from the hospitality tax fund for the past two years.
On Thursday, Summerville Town Council is expected to talk about that application. The town says they cannot hand the funds over for general operating expenses.
Instead, it must be used for specific programs like an exhibit.
