Arrow Rock to receive federal historic preservation grant

Jefferson City, Mo. - The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded the village of Arrow Rock, a Certified Local Government, with a $37,516 grant through the federal Historic Preservation Fund. The city will use the grant to partner with the Missouri Archaeological Society, Missouri State Parks and the State Historic Preservation Office to support a training program for avocational archaeologists and other members of the interested public. The training will cover responsible artifact collection, site recordation and archaeological field surveys. It will also provide certification for participants.

The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 authorizes a program of federal matching grants, known as the Historic Preservation Fund, to assist the various states in carrying out historic preservation activities. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, and in Missouri, is administered through the Department of Natural Resources' State Historic Preservation Office.
