The Schroon-North Hudson Historical Society has been awarded a grant of $300 from the Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region at the Adirondack Community Trust.
According to Loris Clark, president of the historical society, the grant will be used for preservation.
The organization has had numerous accomplishments during the last decade, but pouring a new foundation under the 100-plus-year-old building was the most challenging.
“The grant from the Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region through the Adirondack Community Trust will give the historical society the additional resources to restore and preserve some 22 cassette tapes of oral history on to CDs.,” Clark said.
The historical society was founded in 1976 and has served local families in and around the towns of Schroon and North Hudson, as well as, the many tourists and visitors to the Adirondack area.
The Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region (CFGMR) is a component fund of the Adirondack Community Trust, a community foundation working to build permanent and pass-through funds to help meet current and future charitable needs of the Adirondack region.
