The Preston Historical Society has been awarded a Legacy Grant through the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Program from the Minnesota Historical Society. The amount of the grant is $25,103.

The grant is for the “Milwaukee Elevator: Reconstruction of Additions” project which will include the reconstruction of the bagging shed and scale house to the 1902 Milwaukee elevator in Preston.

The project was recommended for funding by the Historical Resources Advisory Committee at their meeting on December 19-20, 2011. Dick Petsch, President; Bob Maust, Vice President; and Marc Sather, Treasurer of the local Preston Historical Society made a presentation on behalf of the grant application to the State Advisory Committee.

The grant award was approved by the Minnesota Historical Society’s Executive Council on January 19, 2012. The grant will target the architectural work portion of the $275,000 total reconstruction project. When completed, the structures will house the interpretive portions of the Elevator complex.
