FY 2012 MHAA Grants Awarded in Montgomery County
- A $47,000 Capital Grant to the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission for the restoration of the Poole (Seneca) Store in Poolesville. Built in 1901 by Frederick A. Allnutt, the Poole Store has been a fixture in the Poolesville/Seneca area for over 100 years, serving the rural, agricultural and equestrian communities. The restoration of this local landmark preserves an important link to our farming history and provides a gateway to the beautiful Agricultural Reserve.
