In 2010, the following CLG communities were awarded matching grants to undertake historic preservation projects in their communities:
City of Boyne City - Rehabilitate the National Register of Historic Places-listed 1910 Boyne City Water Works Building ($54,450)
Upon completion the building will have three uses: reconnect to the water system to serve as a supplemental pumping house; to serve as public restrooms along an adjacent bike path and proposed neighborhood park; to create a mini-museum to include displays and artifacts highlighting the history of the building. Work includes demolition, replacement of the roof structure, fill in basement and install floor slab, brick masonry repair, door and window repair/replacement, and replacement of the boiler and electrical system.
City of Detroit - Prepare walking, driving, and biking tours focused on Detroit's Modern architecture ($12,935)
The walking, driving, and biking tours coincide with the SHPO's Michigan Modern project. Tour destinations include buildings designed by notable architects such as Minoru Yamasaki, Eliel Saarinen, Eero Saarinen, Gunnar Birkerts, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and others.
City of Mount Clemens - Rehabilitation of the Mount Clemens Train Depot ($18,000)
The exterior masonry walls of the National Register of Historic Places-listed depot will be repointed.
County of Washtenaw - Preparation of a Rehabilitation Master Plan (RMP) for Gordon Hall ($14,752)
The county of Washtenaw will partner with the Dexter Area Historical Society and Museum to hire a consultant to prepare a historic building Rehabilitation Master Plan for Judge Samuel W. Dexter House (Gordon Hall) in Dexter. Gordon Hall is one of the most striking Greek Revival homes in Michigan, unique for its grand scale with well-balanced proportions and massive tetrastyle portico. The house was completed in 1844 for Judge Samuel W. Dexter, chief justice of Washtenaw County from 1826 to 1833, founder of the city of Dexter, and a University of Michigan Regent. Restored in the 1940s by Emil Lorch, professor emeritus of architecture at the University of Michigan, the interior of the house was altered radically when the house was converted into apartments in 1951. The Dexter Area Historical Society purchased the historic home from the University of Michigan in March 2006.
