Historic district receives $8,750 to build database

By Lisa King

When Shelbyville got its chunk of $80,000 in federal funds that went to nine Kentucky communities for historic preservation in 2013, officials used the $8,750 to tackle a project that is now near fruition – cataloging hundreds of historical structures and making that information available to the public.
Shelbyville Historic District Coordinator Fred Rogers said the grant, administered by the Kentucky Heritage Council through the U.S. National Parks Service, is a 60-40 match, with the city of Shelbyville contributing $5,833, for a total of $14,583.
