HARRISBURG – A Keystone Historic Preservation Grant totaling $20,000 has been awarded to South Middleton Township for the restoration of the former Appalachian Trail Conservancy Office located in Boiling Springs, according to Rep. Thomas Kutz (R-Cumberland).
“I am pleased to see this grant awarded locally to revamp to the former Appalachian Trail Conservancy Office. This building was once a resource for hikers and nature-lovers looking to explore Pennsylvania’s natural beauty, and I look forward to seeing what the structure becomes reused for with the funds from this project. I am happy to have advocated for this funding through the commission,” said Kutz.
The township will use the PHMC grant funds to conduct a Historic Structures Feasibility and Reuse Report for the adaptive reuse of the building. The intent of the planning effort is to provide recommendations for the highest and best uses of the historic building and identify improvements needed to ensure structural integrity.
Questions about this grant or any other state-related issue can be directed to Kutz’s office at 717- 975-2235.
