BOONTON — Another two grants have been awarded to the Town of Boonton to preserve our historic resources. In a letter dated July 15, the Town received confirmation from the Morris County Board of County Commissioners that both the Boonton Ironworks and Boonton Train Trestle projects will be awarded funding by the 2021 Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund. The Ironworks project will receive $33,600 while the Train Trestle will be allotted $24,000 in grant monies.
The $33,600 award to our Ironworks will fund a preservation plan, interpretive plan, an archaeological assessment. The $24,000 award for the Train Trestle project will fund the completion of construction documents necessary to repair the structure’s steel and masonry as well as a design for ADA access to the Trestle.
Our Grants Committee, consisting of Council Members Edina Renfro-Michel, Joe Fenske, and Marie DeVenezia as well as Town Hall staff have been hard at work applying for grants to improve upon our town and preserve its historic structures. Thank you for all your efforts!
