Perkins Chapel Receives 3rd Grant Award from Prince George’s Co. Historic Preservation Commission under the M-NCPPC
Efforts by Melanie Hartwig-Davis, AIA, LEED AP BD+C have led to a third grant award for the restoration of the historic Perkins Chapel at Glendale United Methodist Church. This $50,000 grant recently approved by the Planning Board of the M-NCPPC brings the total grants monies awarded to $115,000. These monies, combined with the Glendale UMC matching funds, are being used to repair and restore the Civil War Era chapel. Extensive structural repairs to the foundation, a complete restoration of the original German lap siding and other wood work are just a few of the challenges that have been achieved with this funding. Project completion is expected by the end of 2017.
