42 West Virginia Counties to Receive Historic Preservation Grants

Office of the Governor

Forty-two West Virginia counties are receiving state grants for historic preservation.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced the grants yesterday. He says they will help enhance access to public records and maintain historic sites around the state.

Funding for the program comes from filing fees collected by county clerks.

In addition, several communities will receive National Park Service grants for architectural or archaeological survey, development and heritage education projects.

The grants announced yesterday total $464,000.
