VT Historic Buildings and Barns Receving Renovation Funding
By Joe Gullo
MONTPELIER, Vt. - Vermont historic buildings and barns are receiving $540,190 in state preservation grants.
A press release says 37 buildings across 11 Vermont counties are receiving the grants in 2014.
“Vermont’s architectural heritage is important not only to understanding our past, but also to the current and future economic vitality of our state,” said Governor Shumlin. “Protecting these historic buildings ensures that we honor our past as we look to the future. The efforts of this year’s grant recipients to preserve important civic and agricultural structures demonstrates their commitment to a vibrant Vermont economy.”
The money will be used for roof replacements, cupola and spire work, structural and frame repairs, window restoration, and foundation and drainage improvements.
