CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Nineteen repair and restoration projects at historic sites in West Virginia will receive $469,000 in state development grants.

The state Archives and History Commission determined grant recipients based on recommendations from the Division of Culture and History’s state historic preservation office.

The projects involve sites in 14 counties listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The largest grants are for roof replacements at the Staats Building in Charleston, the Fairmont fire station and the Mercer County Courthouse in Princeton, along with masonry repair at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg.

Funding for the grant programs comes from the state Legislature.
