ROCKINGHAM, Vt. (AP) — A town in Vermont plans to submit a grant application to purchase and revamp an historic train station.
The Rockingham Select Board unanimously approved the town to apply for a federal grant to be used toward the renovation of the Bellow Falls train station, the Brattleboro Reformer reported Monday.
The station was first built in 1849 and heavily renovated in 1921 after a major fire. Bellow Falls is about a two hour drive south of Burlington.
Gary Fox, Rockingham's development director, said the project will likely cost about $26,600. The town is applying for $11,550.
The grant application is due March 31.
