The Linden Heritage Foundation was recently allocated a $9,750.00 grant by the National Trust for Historic Preservation from the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns. These grant funds will be used to support the Old Linden Firehouse Rescue Project by funding Plans and Specifications.
The Rescue Plan for the Old Firehouse is to . . .
. . . locate historic photos,
. . . restore the building to the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for historic preservation,
. . . finalize the site’s listing on the National Register of Historic Places,
. . . give the building a commercial user that will further Linden revitalization goals, and
. . . create a heritage asset out of the present eyesore on this important block of downtown Linden.
“Organizations like the Linden Heritage Foundation, help to ensure that communities and towns all across America retain their unique sense of place,” said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “We are honored to provide a grant to the Linden Heritage Foundation which will use the funds to help preserve an important piece of our shared national heritage.”
