GRANBY ARCHITECTURAL CONSERVATION DISTRICT
 

PDS PP IMG Granby Page PhotoThe Granby Mill Village is quite possibly the best collection of mill housing remaining in the state today. Its compact and visually striking appearances making it a fine example of late nineteenth century mill village design and its association with the prominent W.B. Smith Whaley lends great historical importance to its level of significance. The predominant "saltbox" style houses were built 1897-1899. The neighborhood was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 and was designated a local Architectural Conservation District in 2010.

CITY RECEIVES $20,000 IN LOCAL & FEDERAL GRANTS TO HELP STABILIZE HISTORIC HOMES IN THE GRANBY MILL VILLAGE

 

The City of Columbia’s Planning Division recently received two $10,000 grants to fund the Granby Mill Village Stabilization Program, a preservation initiative designed to stabilize historic mill houses located within the boundaries of the Granby Mill Village Historic District. The goal of the Granby Mill Village Stabilization Program is to repair building components that have failed due to water infiltration.

Typical projects will include roof repair, window and siding rehabilitation, and structural repair. A minimum investment threshold of 20% of the grant amount from individual property owners will be required. Level I projects will require a minimum investment of $1,200, of which $1,000 will be reimbursable upon completion and final approval. Level II projects will require a minimum investment of $2,400, of which $2,000 will be reimbursable upon completion and final approval. The grant program will have the potential to impact up to
20 individual buildings with a total investment of at least $24,000.

The application deadline for the program is January 31, 2014. Stabilization efforts will take place between March 1, 2014 and May 30, 2014. Contact the Planning Division at 803-545-3216 or jfthreatt@columbiasc.net for more information.
