Landmarks awards funds to save meaningful places

Journal Review

In 2022, Indiana Landmarks awarded more than $170,000 to help nonprofits and cities around Indiana save meaningful places. Drawing from a variety of funds, these grants support efforts ranging from architectural assessments and repairs at historic houses of worship to digital walking tours and workshops, videos and summer programs for youth.

“Indiana Landmarks offers grants to help spark community revitalization and bolster preservation projects around the state,” said Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks. “We’re extremely grateful that with the support of many generous donors we’re able to offer this critical support to local preservation groups.”

Among the recipients is the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum. It will receive $2,500 for a structural and rehabilitation assessment of the site’s 1870 carriage house.

The money is coming from the Efroymson Family Endangered Places fund. In 2022, Indiana Landmarks made 12 grants totaling $33,500 from the fund.

The Heritage Preservation Society of Putnam County, Greencastle, received $2,500 to produce walking tour brochures of National Register-listed historic districts in Bainbridge, Cloverdale, Roachdale, Russellville and Greencastle. Money came from the Historic Preservation Education Grant fund. In 2022, Indiana Landmarks awarded $28,927 to fund 12 such projects.
