PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota State Historical Society has awarded six historic preservation grants.

The awards ranging from about $2,100 to $15,000 come through the society’s Deadwood Fund grant program.

Receiving grants are: Murtha House in Elk Point, Trinity Episcopal Church in Groton, Keystone Museum/Old Keystone School in Keystone, Homestake Powder House in Lead, Mobridge Auditorium/Scheer-Howe Arena in Mobridge and Aby’s Feed and Seed in Rapid City.

State Historical Society Director Jay Vogt says the program is designed to encourage restoration or rehabilitation of historic properties. He says it’s one more way the state can promote and protect its history and culture.
