State Grants Historic Buildings $16K for Facelifts
Historic Windsor, Inc and The American Precision Museum in Windsor, Vermont received a total of $16,000 in grants from the Division for Historic Preservation, a sector of the State’s Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
The American Precision Museum will use its grant to begin the first phase of a project to repair the exterior brickwork of the Robbins & Lawrence Armory, which is home to the celebrated museum. The funding will be the initial installation of a momentous $1.2 million project to restore the building’s exterior.
Historic Windsor Inc, a non-profit, will use their $7,690 grant to repair the roof of their recently acquired Stephen Jacob House, a symbol of the anti-slavery movement in Vermont. The organization operates the Preservation Education Institute, providing hands-on training for students in the restoration and preservation of historic buildings. The building and the grant awarded will facilitate a valuable learning environment for students of the institute.
