Preservation Burlington Launches Grant Program to Help Residents Properly Maintain their Historic Homes!


Homeowner Mary Dalton receives her congratulatory Grant Award sign at her intact 1928 1-1/2 story classic bungalow with tapered porch posts and handsome entrance sidelights.

Local nonprofit organization Preservation Burlington, Inc. has awarded its first Homeowner Grant of $5,000 toward restoration work on the home of Mary Dalton at 420 Tarpley Street, Burlington. Mary’s project will repair damage to her exterior siding, gables, and porch, restore the full function and seal of her original s ash windows, and give the house a quality paint job. To ensure the work will maintain the historic character of the home and be a credit to the future of the neighborhood, all work will conform to the City of Burlington Design Review Guidelines and to the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Buildings.

The long term goal of the ongoing grant program is to enhance neighborhood integrity and pride of place while magnifying neighborhood real estate values in the various historic districts of the City of Burlington.
