Mormon Steamboat Inn To Be Restored
(Threshers, others get historic grant)
Burlington IA Hawkeye 2Jun00 D6

MOUNT PLEASANT, IOWA -- Not all of the restoration being done near Nauvoo, Illinois is being done by Nauvoo Restoration, the LDS Church-owned organization restoring Mormon buildings in the city. A group in Bentonsport, Iowa is seeking to restore the 1846 steamboat inn built by Mormon craftsman.

The group has obtained a grant from the State Historical Society of Iowa, which is a division of the state Department of Cultural Affairs. The $20,000 grant will be used to rehabilitate portions of both the exterior and interior of the inn, the only steamboat inn in the Midwest still being used to provide lodging.

The funds are part of $386,000 in grants provided by the state of Iowa in its historical grant program, which is in its 11th year.
