Washington Trust for Historic Preservation Awards Grant to Friends of Skamokawa

Through the Valerie Sivinski Washington Preserves Fund, the program assists preservation projects where they really happen – at the local level.

Recipients of the 2012 Valerie Sivinski Washington Preserves Fund grant awards were announced at the Washington Trust Holiday Party. The Washington Trust was pleased to announce an award to the Friends of Skamokawa Foundation, among others.

The F.O.S. Foundation received $1,000 to rehabilitate the bell on the 1894 Redmen Hall, formerly the Central Skamokawa School. Part of the Skamokawa National Register Historic District, this building has been a community preservation effort since the Friends purchased it in 1985.
