Grand Island woman raises money to place historical marker on Tornado Hill
A Grand Island woman is raising money to place a historical marker at the infamous Tornado Hill.
Stephanie Crosby started the fundraiser on June 3, 2020, the 40th anniversary of the night when tornadoes wiped out city businesses and homes.
Crosby has already raised over 3,000 dollars with a t-shirt fundraiser which ended last week but she is still thousands shy of her 6,000 dollar goal. Crosby is still accepting donations.
"If anybody would like to donate, they can donate at the Great Western Bank and the account is under Tornado Hill Historical Marker Fund," said Stephanie Crosby.
When Crosby was a kid, she knew what happened the night of the twisters and now she wants future generations to know the history behind what happened.
"The hill is here for a reason and it's an amazing part of our town history and it's important that people know why it's here and how a city can come together after a tragedy," said Crosby.
