Graham Announces $500,000 Grant for Historic Preservation of Old City Jail in Charleston

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the Old City Jail in Charleston will receive a $500,000 grant for historic preservation. Save America’s Treasures grants, awarded by the U.S. Department of the Interior, are matching grants to preserve nationally significant threatened intellectual and cultural artifacts and historic structures and sites. A dollar-for-dollar non-Federal match is required. “One of South Carolina’s greatest assets is our rich history,” said Graham. “These funds will help preserve another one of Charleston’s great historic structures.” ####
