Two local projects have been included in the latest round of history grants from Minnesota Legacy appropriations from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
The City of Goodhue is receiving $10,000 for the Duluth Red Wing Southern Railroad Depot National Register Evaluation. The grant will help in hiring qualified consultants to evaluate the Duluth Red Wing Southern Railroad Depot in Goodhue for possible inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies will receive $10,000 for Water Tower Balcony Painting Restoration. The grant will be used to hire professionals to restore painted designs on the knee wall and balcony slab underside of the water tower balcony at Tower View to their 1915-1921 appearance.
In Fiscal Year 21, the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund appropriation is $7.0 million for grants "for history programs and projects … or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.”
