WORTHINGTON — The Nobles County Historical Society, Worthington, received a $9,360 grant from the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage fund. The money will be used to digitize part of a large collection of photo negatives, allowing for greater public access to this historic resource.

NCHS was one of 28 grant recipients in this round of funding, with grant dollars totaling $264,831 distributed within 15 counties.

Small grants are awarded quarterly to help nonprofits, educational organizations, government units and federally recognized tribes to preserve and share Minnesota history. This cycle of awards was approved by the MNHS Executive Council on Sept. 7.

Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants are made possible by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008. The Legacy Amendment supports efforts to preserve Minnesota land, water and legacy, including Minnesota history and cultural heritage.
