TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - A southwest Arkansas county has received a grant of more than $70,000 to restore the windows on its decades-old courthouse building.

The Texarkana Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/VpLBhT ) the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program announced the grant to restore windows on the south side of the Miller County Courthouse, which dates back to 1939.

The program had already awarded $54,500 for the project, bringing the total to more than $125,000. The county asked for $150,000 but said any amount is appreciated. The money will allow the county to bring in specialists who know how to repair the windows, which are rusted through.

The preservation program has awarded $2 million in grants for projects in 33 counties.
