We at The Mount are so very pleased and proud to have received a substantial grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund for a much-needed restoration project. The $137,000 award will go a long way towards replacing and restoring the roofs, cupolas, and chimneys on the historic stables and gatehouse.
The Mount is among 54 arts, heritage, and science organizations in the state awarded a total of $7.4 million by the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund to support building projects. A sincere thank you to everyone who made this program possible!
Happily, The Mount also received from another Boston-based organization $100,000 in funding earmarked for the stable and gatehouse restoration projects. You can find more details in the press release we sent on November 22.
