Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission Awards $125,000 Across 13 Entities

The Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission recently awarded 13 historic preservation groups across the state with $125,000, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The award is the first round of the commission’s Outside Deadwood grant program for this year.

The largest award of $25,000 went to the Historic Prairie Village in Madison, South Dakota to restore the Art B. Thomas Carousel. Regional awards included the All Angels Episcopal Church in Spearfish for door replacement; the High Plains Western Heritage Center, also in Spearfish, for roof repairs; and the Homestake Mining Company for walking trail signage.

The Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission has provided over $2 million in awards for historic preservation projects outside of Deadwood since 2002. There are two funding cycles each year—the first in January, and the second in June. Applicants must be registered as National Historic Landmarks or National Register properties that operate on a not-for-profit or governmental basis.
