The Grimes County courthouse will be getting some new repairs thanks to the Texas Historical Commission.
The THC approved an award for $250,000 to the county for repair to the roof, walls and windows of the historic 1894 courthouse. The funds are part of a $12.3 million grant from the National Park Service for use by historic properties in a 22 county area impacted by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
Applications for those grants and funds are being accepted from now until 5 pm on Friday, May 24th. Properties receiving grants must be listed in the or be eligible for listing and have a nomination accepted by the THC before final project costs are reimbursed.
No word on the timetable for beginning repairs at the courthouse.
