BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The State Historical Society of North Dakota has awarded over $198,000 to 20 organizations and homeowners for projects meant to preserve the state’s heritage.

Funding for these grants was authorized by the 2015 Legislature. A maximum of $20,000 was available per grant, with a dollar-for-dollar match requirement.

Bismarck Parks and Recreation and the Fullerton Community Betterment Association are among those receiving funding. Bismarck Parks and Recreation was given more than $19,000 to complete the General Sibley Park and Campground Interpretive Trail, while the association in Fullerton will use its $4,350 to replace the roof on the historic Carroll House.

Claudia Berg with the Historical Society says the grants “have become important sparkplugs that energize these groups to preserve, document and present North Dakota’s heritage on the landscape where history happened.”
