MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Thirty-seven Vermont buildings in 11 counties are going to be sharing $540,000 in state preservation grants.

The structures include historic meeting houses, churches, barns and libraries.

Officials say the historic architecture provides a visual record of life in Vermont over the past 200 years and represents the state’s heritage to current and future generations.

The preservation of the buildings also generates jobs, supports independent businesses, increases civic participation and contributes to a community’s sense of place.

Gov. Peter Shumlin announced the grants earlier this month.
