RAHS Receives Grant from RCCF

The Roscommon County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that the Roscommon Area Historical Society (RAHS) has been awarded a $261.00 grant. Funding for the grant was provided by the Tom & Jan Richardson Family Endowment for Roscommon Area Historical Society.

This grant was the first made from the new endowment fund at the Community Foundation which was established by Tom Richardson and his daughter Kate Ellis in memory of their loving wife/mother, Jan Richardson.

According to RAHS President Ethan Brand, the grant was used to make repairs to the front porch of the Gallimore House and apply a fresh coat of paint to the Silsby building. Brand said the RAHS is grateful to the Richardson family for supporting its mission to protect and preserve Roscommon’s History.
