Adair County Gets Grant

Adair County will receive a $76,800 grant through the federal Historic Preservation Fund.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources announced the grant yesterday. The county will use the grant to make structural repairs necessary to stabilize the roof framework of the courthouse, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The grants are awarded based on a competitive scoring process and the direct relation of the projects to the identification, evaluation, or protection of historical, architectural or archaeological resources.
