SHEBOYGAN -- The Military Heritage Museum and Education Center is having financial difficulties, owing more than $334,000 to a bank.

Sheboygan Press Media reports that court records indicate the museum currently owes Bank First National a principal sum of $316,728 in unpaid mortgage since April 2, plus more than $17,300 in interest and other fees.

The museum had its grand opening in August of last year. Bank First National's attorney filed the motion for foreclosure in June. After the filing, museum officials failed to appear in court or file a response.

The museum is operated by the Wisconsin Naval Ship Association. A message left for the museum's executive director, Larry Hinkelman, was not immediately returned Saturday.
Another hearing is scheduled for Monday in Sheboygan County Circuit Court.
