Weslaco home awarded Texas Historical Foundation grant
WESLACO, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — The Texas Historical Foundation has awarded a grant to restore a historical home in Weslaco.
The Frontera Audubon Society worked to get the grant to help in the cost and cleaning of the 1927 Skaggs House stucco exterior and the grant will also serve to match a $10,000 donation by the City of Weslaco.
The Spanish Mediterranean style home was donated to the Frontera Audubon Society in 1992 and was designated at a Texas Historical Landmark in 1994.
The Economic Development Corporation of Weslaco donated $44,000 to Frontera Audubon Society for the ceramic title roof which was completed in September.
