Nearly half of the project is being paid for from a $90,200 Community Development Investment grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. Federal and state tax credits account for $30,000 of the work and so far, $15,000 has been raised from private donations, an effort that continues.

“This stretch of highway runs through a scenic part of rural Wisconsin and draws travelers from around the world who come to learn more about visionary architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the landscapes that inspired him,” said Missy Hughes, WEDC’s secretary and CEO. “Opening the historic Wyoming Valley School for tours and events will draw even more visitors and allow new generations to experience the area’s rich cultural heritage.”
