Final plans for an already-existing fossil and gem museum on Old Stanford Road were approved Wednesday by the Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission.
The J.F.C. Museum, owned by Danny Curtsinger, has been a work in progress as it has been developed in stages over the last several years. During this time, Curtsinger has been refurbishing a building for use as the actual museum, moving tractor-trailers onto the property to use mainly for storage, and cleaning up the property.
The commission recently asked him to submit the final plans so it could have a record of all the structures that are on the property and the current and planned uses of those structures.
The museum property currently consists of five tractor-trailers and a building that used to serve as Sam's Service Station. Four of the trailers are used for storage of tons of fossils and historic stones and for equipment, and one of the trailers is used for cutting and polishing stones and cleaning fossils. Several rooms in the building are used to display the fossils and stones.
