Commissioners continue to study options for fixing the Pike County Museum after making no decision on initial estimates.

Commissioners continue to study options for fixing the Pike County Museum after making no decision on initial estimates.

 The three-member panel on Monday toured the 131-year-old Bowling Green facility, which is housed in the old jail on Church Street just east of the square.

The museum is normally open each Thursday afternoon and by appointment, but its doors are closed because of a broken furnace and water leaks in the basement.

Estimates for repairing or replacing the furnace range from $500 to $1,400. Costs have not been submitted to take care of the leaks. Commissioners hope to keep the total under $2,000.

The building served the county from the 1880s until the current jail was built in the mid-1990s. The Pike County Genealogical Society leases the space and has operated the museum there since 2012.
