MISSOULA -

The Historical Museum at Fort Missoula awards two history grants to preservation projects in Missoula County.

The Lolo Watershed Group and the Potomac School District each received a $5,000 grant from the museum's Board of Trustees.

Museum officials said both projects will help preserve the rich heritage of people in both areas.

Executive Director of the Museum, Bob Brown, explained, "We are Missoula County's museum, but we also know we're not reaching everyone, so, the Preserving Missoula County History Grant, that allows us to help support other institutions that are doing our job, which is preserving Missoula County history."

Lolo teachers and students are collecting oral histories and photos from residents from earlier generations for their project.

The Potomac project honors the legacy of the area's founders through images and stories.
