The West Nebraska Arts Center is getting help for the second year in a row from an organization dedicated to preserving historic buildings and sites.
Executive Director Donna Thompson says Questers is providing a $2,325 grant to the Arts Center to pay for additional cleanup of their sandstone building that is approaching 100 years old.
Thompson said they had the building power-washed and scrubbed to clean algae and mold from the outside of the aging sandstone building. Last year Questers provided a $1,500 grant toward the painting and refinishing of windows on the building.
Thompson says the structure was built in 1921 and added on to in 1936. She says while a lot of remodeling has been done on the inside it is always a challenge to keep the face of the building looking good.
