WORTHINGTON - In a unanimous show of support, Nobles County commissioners on Tuesday approved a $500,000 match grant from the county’s general fund reserves to comply with a challenge issued by Bob and Pat Ludlow and the city of Worthington.

The action will result in $2 million - joining $1 million from the Ludlows and $500,000 from the city (taken from its savings dating back to the sale of Worthington Regional Hospital) - to renovate the Armory Business Center in downtown Worthington into a museum for the Nobles County Historical Society.
