Jimmy Stewart Museum In Pa May Close

11.19.10 | Sarah Harnisch

 A museum in western Pennsylvania that honors the man who starred in "It's A Wonderful Life" may have to close. The Jimmy Stewart Museum in Indiana County is asking for help. The tiny museum relies on a population that remembers Stewart, and his film was made in 1946. His supporters aren't traveling anymore. Stewart, also a successful World War 2 pilot, flew 20 missions over wartime Germany. But his hometown was Indiana, Pennsylvania. The museum says Stewart always mentioned his hometown with pride whenever he was interviewed. Tonight, the museum is offering free admissions and movie screenings to show the community what they have to offer. If they don't get enough donations, though, they won't be open much longer.
