Granville Corner School got grant, tax credit
GRANVILLE — The Corner School Resource Center of Granville has recently been awarded both a Vermont State Tax Credit and a grant from the Walter Cerf Community Fund. These awards will help the organization, known as the CSRC, continue its renovation of Granville’s historic one-room schoolhouse and create a vibrant community space.
On Oct. 2, CSRC board members Ron Millard and Diane Eramo, accompanied by Granville Selectman Bruce Hyde and part-time resident Christine Millard, attended the tax credit ceremony presided over by Gov. Phil Scott. The competitive program promotes the revitalization of designated Village Centers by redirecting income taxes to pay construction bills of qualified buildings.
The monies from the Walter Cerf Community Fund are earmarked for a new floor, wiring, or window restoration, continuing the work of this past summer. In 2019, through the tireless efforts of local contractors and volunteers, great progress was made on the building’s foundation, insulation and subfloor.
The CSRC welcomes everyone interested in local history, one-room schools, or fostering community spirit to find out more about the Corner School at cornerschoolvt.org.
