Prickett's Fort Memorial Foundation Receives Grant for Renovations from Governor

Posted: Updated:

The Marion County Commission has received the Governor's Community Participation Grant to assist the Prickett's Fort Memorial Foundation with some renovations.

The visitor's center was built almost 10 years ago to replace a barn that was destroyed in a fire.

Prickett's Fort staff said upgrades were past due, and thanks the county and state officials for their help.

The $10,000 grant will go toward replacing the floors and lights in the visitor's center.

"We can turn these lights up and down but they aren't real bright. This will help brighten it up and we will be able to control the lighting a little better," said Greg Bray, of the Prickett's Fort Foundation.

The foundation will begin construction on the visitor's center once it closes in the fall.
