Scotland Historical Society
The Scotland Hotel is a 19th century building that has been owned by the Scotland Historical Society since 1971 and is on the National Register of Historic places.
The Scotland Historical Society was awarded $12,790 in 2019 for the preservation and beautification of the hotel. They have since replaced the old wooden posts with vinyl covered posts, replaced the soffits and porch ceiling, painted around all the windows and doors, and started installing new vinyl siding.
Funds from the Jack and Gene Inman Fund Memorial Fund made this grant possible. The purpose of the Inman Memorial Fund is to provide support for historical and environmental preservation.
During our June COVID-19 grant cycle Bless Bloomfield was awarded $10,000 though our COVID-19 Fund and $5,000 from the 100 Acre Woods fund. With the $15,000 Bless Bloomfield was able to provide assistance to over 70 families in the Bloomfield School District through the Food Box program. That totaled over 7 tons of food. They were also able to distribute 1600 half-gallons of milk through the Farmers to Families program.
The COVID-19 relief funding is made possible through a generous grant by United Way of Monroe County, Indiana United Ways, and Lilly Endowment Inc. and other donors.
