Historic Properties Revolving Fund

The Knox Heritage Revolving Fund is an integral part of our mission to preserve structures and places of historic or cultural significance for our community. Since the first house restoration in 1999, Knox Heritage has become a leader in the field of historic resource preservation.

The Knox Heritage Revolving Fund is a restricted fund dedicated solely to difficult preservation of place. We purchase endangered properties and embark on renovations to save their unique architecture and presence in a neighborhood. These renovation projects would likely not be undertaken by a private developer. Knox Heritage combines financial resources from the Revolving Fund with grants and donations to make them financially viable. Upon completion, new property owners take over and we have helped stabilize and improve a historic neighborhood while recapturing the funds used for use on another project.
