GRAFTON, Vt. (AP) - The Preservation Trust of Vermont wants to conserve a historic cabin in southern Vermont.

Preservation trust director Paul Bruhn tells Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/1SqkRqR ) that the Burlington-based nonprofit has been raising money to conserve the Turner Family homestead in Grafton.

African-American storyteller, historian and poet Daisy Turner lived on the property, as well as her family. Turner, who died in 1988 at the age of 104, is known for her oral recordings of her life story.

Bruhn says the property is an important part of the African-American Trail in Vermont.

The site is getting a new access road and information kiosk. Bruhn says it will be more accessible after the work is done.

He says he hopes that work on the road will be done this year.
