LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Florida Southern College has been awarded $400,000 in grants from the State of Florida’s Division of Historical Resources to help restore and maintain the school’s Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.

The school announced the grant Friday. It says that the money must be matched dollar-for-dollar by the college, which means that $800,000 will be spent within the next two years.

A chunk of the money will be spent on restoring the interior of the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel to its original appearance.

The school is home to the world’s largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2012.
