The Minnesota Historical Society awarded two Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage grants to the Wabasha County Historical Society. Money will support Reads Landing School Museum.

"We're thrilled," WCHS president Helen Myers said. "We are so pleased to see the work that has been done has laid the groundwork for restoring and protecting this beautiful, historic building."

The first grant, totaling $4,950, was approved in December 2011 and will provide safety improvements at Reads Landing School Museum. The next grant of $18,290 was awarded in January 2012 and supports the development of construction documents.
