Minnesota Public Radio is the state's largest cultural organization, providing 96 percent of the population with free access to some of the best broadcast cultural programming in the world. Minnesota Public Radio is using a grant from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund to implement projects around the following four goals:
Taylor Township, Traverse County, retained the services of a historical consultant to complete a National Register Nomination for School District No. 44 School. It was presented to the Review Board in May, 2011 and is now listed in the National Register.
An historic marker was commissioned and installed at the site and an informational brochure was designed and printed for distribution to the public.
An entrance ramp was constructed and five doorways were widened to improve the accessibility of the historic Scwyzer Lodge. The ramp was consructed with green treated lumber and measures 36 feet long by 4 feet wide. Crushed limestone was put down on the trail leading from the parking lot to the foot of the ramp.
One exterior and four interior doors were widened to 36 inches. All trim and jams were stained to match the original woodwork as closely as possible.
