County supervisors Tuesday set aside $1.3 million to repair water-damaged roofs, walls, floors and balconies in the William S. Hart Ranch and Museum.

The money will be split up to fund two different projects. The driveway into the park will be repaired for $465,000, according to a county report. The road has become damaged because of poor water drainage.

Another $850,000 will be used to replace several roofs on the museum that have been damaged by rain.

Hart, a Western silent movie actor, donated his Newhall mansion and 260-acre ranch to the county after he died in 1946. His ranch is now William S. Hart Park.
