37 Organizations In Tennessee To Get Preservation Grants

CREATED Jun 10, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Thirty-seven community organizations in Tennessee are getting grants to preserve historic and archaeological sites, districts and structures.

Governor Bill Haslam announced the grants this week and said the more than $600,000 in assistance will ensure that the state's rich history will continue to be shared with future generations.

The Tennessee Historical Commission reviewed 63 applications with funding requests totaling nearly $2 million.

This year's selection included archaeological surveys, design guidelines for historic districts, rehabilitation of historic buildings, posters highlighting the state's history and archaeology, and brochures related to historic tourism.
