As we all know, Jack White loves old things and preserving the past. And so, as The Portland Press Herald reports, he’s helping to restore a house featured in the 1983 film The Outsiders.

Jack White’s management confirmed that he donated $30,000 to the effort to restore a house in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was featured in Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s 1967 classic young adult novel.

Danny O’Connor is reportedly leading a campaign to turn the house into a museum about the film itself. He says that White’s donation helped them meet a $75,000 fundraising goal for the project.
