Chalmers, Carnegie receive grant money
Chalmers Institute and Carnegie Auditorium, both in Holly Springs, have received $80,000 and $400,000 preservation grants, respectively, from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
The announcement of the awards was contained in a December press release announcing nearly $3 million in grants to 26 preservation and restoration projects over the state.
The Community Heritage Preservation grant program is authorized and funded through the Mississippi Legislature and helps restore historic properties.
Chelius Carter, president of Preserve Marshall County and Holly Springs, said the recent award to Chalmers brings the total money available for continuing the restoration work to close to $200,000. This grant is to help replace the roof and restore the interior.
Jim Woodrick, historic preservation director with Mississippi Department of Archives, said to date, $27 million in Community Heritage Preservation grants has been awarded to cover 170 projects.
“We are grateful to the Legislature again for providing the funds for the preservation of historic structures,” he said.
The funds for Carnegie Auditorium, on the former MI College site, is for stabilization of the building for future restoration.
