(b) Statewide Historic and Cultural Grants.

To implement a self-guided walking tour of the city of Pine River, Heritage Group North Inc. purchased thirteen kiosk displays and installed them at various historic building sites. Each kiosk, made of recycled plastic, displays historic information and photographs from an earlier period. In addition to the kiosks, a tri-fold brochure was designed showing the locations of the walking tour. They are available at the Pine River Chamber Information Center. The walking tour serves to remind residents and visitors of the inherent history to be found in many of the city's structures.
