Building Grants

What We Do > Building Grants

In 1990, we began our community grants program for the restoration or rehabilitation of residential and commercial historic structures. We added grants for educational projects relating to historic preservation in the early 1990s. From 2000 through 2018, the Society’s grant programs have awarded more than $2.5 million dollars to individuals and organizations. Take a look at just a few of our completed grant projects below!
