ST. PAUL – State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston) said he was pleased to learn a pair of local projects have received funding through history grants from Minnesota Legacy appropriations from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
“It’s great to learn that local and state officials were able to collaborate and make this funding happen,” Davids said. “Congratulations to the recipients.”
Davids said the La Crescent Area Historical Society will receive a $5,676 grant for 1832 Boone Land Survey Signage. The funds will be used to design and install interpretive signage about the first land survey in Houston County in 1832.
The Fillmore County Historical Society will also receive $5,300 as part of a general conservation assessment and long-range preservation plan. This grant will be used to hire a qualified museum consultant to conduct a general preservation needs assessment survey and long range collections reservation plan.
Davids noted that the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund appropriation for Fiscal Year 2021 is $7 million for grants “for history programs and projects… or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.”
