UPDATE: State grant goes to FAC

After posting that the El Paso County Courthouse was one of the recipients of a state grant, we wondered if that actually meant the current courthouse, or the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, the latter certainly of more historical significance in this day and age.

Turns out, it is the Pioneers Museum. In an e-mail, CSPM director Matt Mayberry says the grant "will fund the second phase of exterior restoration on your building. This phase will focus on stone and masonry repairs to the west face."

Yesterday, the Colorado Springs Business Journal reported that the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center received a grant from the State Historical Fund. Other local buildings that received funds are All Souls Unitarian Church and the El Paso County Courthouse.

All three recipients will use the funds for building restoration:

The Fine Arts Center received $250,000 for roof rehabilitation; the All Souls Unitarian Church received $202,816 for stained glass window restoration; and the El Paso County Courthouse received $240,450 for exterior rehabilitation.

Last year, the FAC landed 17 grants, many of which went towards programming. As of March of this year, the 75-year-old institution was still looking financially fit.
