Cleveland, Tenn., has been awarded nearly $20,000 by the Tennessee Historical Commission to restore plaster and wood at the historic Craigmiles House, the city's library.

A news release said the $19,191 award is among 31 receiving funding from the federal Historic Preservation Fund that helps support the preservation of historic and archaeological resources.

 "Tennessee's treasured historic places make our state unique and contribute to our quality of life," Patrick McIntyre, state historic preservation officer and executive director of the Tennessee Historical Commission said in the release. "These grants will help protect the sites for future generations to study and enjoy."

The commission also gave $36,000 toward restoration of the historic First United Presbyterian Church in Athens, Tenn., and $54,000 to the Southeast Tennessee Development District to fund a preservation specialist staff position.
