Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia Humanities Council has awarded a $1,500 matching grant to the Augusta Heritage Center at Davis and Elkins College.

The grant is for the digital preservation of rare audio recordings.

Work has already begun on the project.

The Augusta Heritage Center houses 19 recordings in a climate controlled room of Booth Library.

They feature a Glenville man during folk festivals from the mid 1950s through the 1970s.
