Thanks for Helping Colvin Run Mill!

Thanks to the assistance of its enthusiastic supporters (which undoubtedly includes many in our program) in the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s recent contest, Colvin Run Mill will be receiving a $75,000 grant to restore its 18th century grain elevator.  Congratulations to Mike Henry and everyone at the Mill!  Also of note, our friends at George Washington’s Mount Vernon did pretty well too, snagging a $100,000 grant to restore the good General’s dining room.  Exciting stuff!
