Marine City Hall Receives $50,000 Grant

The Historic Marine City Hall is an architectural treasure that was built in the late 1880s. Like any other historic building, it is in need of extensive repairs and maintenance. A recent $50,000 grant from an anonymous donor will go a long way toward getting this local building back to its former glory. 

The Friends of City Hall received the money earlier this month on December 6 and it is the largest grant they have received thus far. According to a statement on the official website for the Friends of City Hall, the funds will be dedicated to a fire suppression system.

The building was abandoned by Marine City in 2005 according to the Friends website, but the group has been working since 2011 to save the building from crumbling. The community has rallied to save the building, getting organized, and working ever since to bring the structure, listed on the National Register of Historic Places to life again.
