UNDATED -- The Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment has provided much-needed funding for historical preservation projects in Minnesota.

Minnesota Historical Society spokesman David Grabitske says here in the St. Cloud area the cities of St. Cloud, Cold Spring and St. Joseph have all benefited from the funding.

The Stearns History Museum was able to replace their HVAC system or Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

St. Cloud State University is using money for projects at their library and for an archaeological dig.

And, at the College of St. Benedict funds will help chronicle the school's first 150 years.

A new report from the University of Minnesota says for every dollar of Legacy Funding invested, we get a return on our investment of $1.95.
