In 2015, HEC made a $2,500 donation to the B&O Railroad Museum for the restoration of a 927 Class I-5d Caboose built in the B & O shop at Washington, Indiana in 1927. HEC’s donation made it possible for the Station to get a matching grant from the Modern Woodmen of America toward the restoration.
In 2015, HEC implemented a new grant program aimed at helping to restore historic buildings and homes in Howard County. The inaugural recipient of this grant program was Mt. Gregory United Methodist Church in Glenwood/Cooksville. For a copy of the Grant Application and Grant Guidelines, please e-mail HistoricEC@hotmail.com.
