The State Historical Fund, or SHF, has awarded nearly $9 million total in grants for preservation projects all over the state. KRCC’s Eliza Densmore reports.
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, the Fine Arts Center, and the Canon City Carnegie Library are among the southern Colorado structures that recently received funds.
Steve Turner, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer, says often the buildings chosen for the grants are among the most loved places in a community. "They also are frequently really the civic heart of a community," Turner said.
