TNECD Historic Development Grant awards $270,000 to Johnson City building owner for restoration project
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development announced the recipients of the state’s Historic Development Grants– which includes a historic building in Johnson City. This grant program provides more than $4 million to projects across the state that aim to renovate and preserve historic buildings. The owners of the F.W. Woolworth and Company building in downtown Johnson City received $270,000 in grant funding to rehabilitate the location. This building began as a Woolworth retail store, and has since housed the popular Hands On! Museum before they relocated to the Gray Fossil Site. Read more here.
