The city of Wichita has received a Historic Preservation Fund grant to be used on the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum.
The grant for $18,900, from the state Historic Sites Review Board, will be used for a building report on the museum, which is the former Wichita City Hall. It is located at 204 S. Main.
The city also received a second grant, for $25,000, for the South Linwood Greenhouse Window Repair Boot Camp.
The Historic Sites Review Board awarded $108,280 this month for nine projects across Kansas.
According to a news release from the Kansas Historical Society, the money comes from the National Park Service, which provides the funds to help finance the Kansas State Historic Preservation Office. A portion of that funding is then passed on to local governments and other groups to help fund historic preservation activities on a local level.
Other cities and groups to receive funding include:
