Grants & Awards

Generous grantors, organizations and benefactors have made it possible for the restoration to move forward through out the years – from donating the depot and land on which the depot sits to the ACHS, the setting up of a family endowment, stocks and cash donations as well as volunteer hours have kept this historic restoration project alive.  Without this generosity this historic building would not exist and live to serve the public once again in the form of center of historic Meadows Valley information, museum and planned artists center on the second level.
