The Ford County Historical Society has been awarded $10,000 from the Community Foundation of Southwest Kansas for the completion of the interior of the Mueller-Schmidt House — Home of Stone.
"This will help complete the renovation of the oldest house in Ford County still located on its original site," said Sonya Hughes with the historical society. "The Ford County Historical Society is grateful to the Community Foundation for their continued and generous support of the society."
The Bat Masterson statue, which the community foundation has also generously helped fund, will be located by the Home of Stone when it is dedicated this fall.
