15 historic Nevada preservation projects get nearly $1M in grant money
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Fifteen historic locations across Nevada have received nearly $1 million total in grant funding for their preservation, according to state officials.
The Nevada State Historic Preservation Office announced it awarded $950,000 for these historic and cultural preservation projects.
The grant program gives funding each year for governmental and non-profit organizations to finish preserving and protecting historic buildings, structures and other sites.
One of those projects benefiting from the funding will be the La Concha Lobby at the Neon Museum near downtown Las Vegas. The lobby, designed by architect Paul Revere Williams, was built for the La Concha Motel that opened in the 1960s.
Other projects in Southern Nevada receiving grant money are the Mesquite High School Gymnasium, the Harrison House on F Street and the First United Methodist Church.
