Area buildings receive preservation funds MONTPELIER--Historic buildings in Chelsea, Fairlee and Mclndoe Falls are among the community buildings in 17 Vermont towns that will receive matching preservation grants in 2014 from the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. The total amount of all the grants, which will be used to restore and maintain the historically significant buildings, is $257,404. In Chelsea, the Orange County Courthouse has served as a courthouse since it was constructed in 1847. The Greek Revival style courthouse was built by local master Horace Carpenter. The grant funds will contribute toward the cost of work in the bell tower, which includes re-gilding the copper dome. Fairlee's Town Hall, built in 1914, has been continuously used for a century as a community center, but use of the second floor auditorium was discontin- ued in 1986 due to safety and accessibility requirements. The grant will help provide for structural repairs to the building that will allow the auditorium to be used once again for public functions. In Caledonia County, the 1850 McIndoe Falls Congregational Church continues to be used as a church and also hosts various community meetings and events. The grant funds will allow the church to restore three of the building's original 20 over 20 double-hung windows. O @ @ @ @ @
