Adirondack Architectural Heritage receives $750,000 National Park Service grant

Keeseville – The National Park Service has awarded Adirondack Architectural Heritage a Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant for the Adirondack Rural Revitalization Program.

This $750,000 grant will fund capital rehabilitation grants for historic main street and agricultural buildings in and around the hamlets and villages of the Adirondack region.

Erin Tobin, executive director of Adirondack Architectural Heritage, said, “The Adirondack Rural Revitalization Program will help drive investment in our North Country communities, providing assistance to small business owners and nonprofits while encouraging rehabilitation in our historic community cores.”

“The Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants program fosters economic development in rural communities through the rehabilitation of historic buildings,” said NPS Director Chuck Sams. “With these funds, our state, Tribal, local government, and non-profit partners can develop subgrant programs and select individual projects that will support the economic development goals and needs in their communities.”

These grants mark the fourth year of funding for the program honoring the late Paul Bruhn, executive director of the Preservation Trust of Vermont for nearly 40 years. See the National Park Service’s website for more information about the grant: https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1207/paul-bruhn-2022.htm

Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) preserves the architecture and communities of the Adirondack region through education, action, and advocacy.

At that, we turned heel and, walking across the street, the side bordering on the Hudson River, entered Smith’s restaurant. Paul was immediately comfortable, having eaten here many times.
