28 Historic Preservation Fund Grants Announced

Governor Bill Haslam and the Tennessee Historical Commission has announced 28 grants to support the preservation of historic and archaeological sites, districts and structures.  “History becomes real when you visit these sites, and it matters that the state helps reflect on and protects its historic places,” Haslam said.   “Today’s announcement represents more than $600,000 in assistance to communities across the state, ensuring that Tennessee’s rich history will continue to be shared with future generations.”  This year’s selection process emphasized projects conducting architectural, archaeological and historic site surveys.  Such projects are designed to identify and to record historic districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects built before 1960 that are significant to Tennessee's history.
