$12,400 to Heritage Preservation Society of Putnam County

The $12,300 awarded at 100 Plus Men Who Care 7th meeting on September 15th will assist with the completion of an ambitious effort to celebrate Putnam County's participation in the Indiana Bicentennial.  The cornerstone of their effort has been the installation and dedication of two clocks on the south and north side of the Putnam County Courthouse.  

The Society has been championing preservation for over 30 years.  Recently, the small group of volunteers has been working in cooperation with a larger group of Putnam County citizens for the bicentennial to identify historic districts to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places in Cloverdale, Russellville, Roachdale, and Bainbridge.
