Museum and White House of the Confederacy Must Move





Facing a current deficit of about $400,000, Executive Director Waite Rawls is certain things will only get worse. During his presentation today to a General Assembly subcommittee studying the cost and feasibility of relocating the White House, a national Historic Landmark, and the 108-year-old museum, Rawls spelled out just how bad it is likely to get. And, for the first time, he admitted that the historic institution is out of options.

"You have to face reality," he said. "We either move the White House or consign it to a fate of an alternative use or very few visitors." Look for more on this and other stories in Tuesday's Times-Dispatch.
