I’m a little late in the game, but there’s still time to vote in the Greater Boston Partners in Preservation $1,000,000 grant initiative. Twenty-five historic properties in the area are eligible for grants, and your vote could help direct funds to your favorite. Curiously enough, you can vote daily through May 17, so you can spread your support around if you so choose. You might even discover a property in the process. For instance, it was only upon visiting the Partners in Preservation website to vote that I learned of Lowell’s Boat Shop. You might be surprised what you find. Check it out.
