The Preston Historical Society is a recipient of 35 gallons of paint from the Southern Minnesota Initiative Fund’s Paint the Town grant program. The grant is being used for maintenance of properties cared for by the Preston Historical Society. This project will include a fixing of the ceiling in the O’Hara schoolhouse, a new coat of paint to the exterior of the schoolhouse, and restoration and paint on the roof of the caboose.
The paint project coordinates recipients with Ace Hardware of St. Charles, MN. Facility committee chairman Jon DeVries and Preston Historical Society President, Sheila Craig picked up the paint recently from the staff at Ace Hardware.
