In 2018, the Spearfish Historic Preservation Commission orchestrated a Paint Grant Program with three grants awarded and two recipients able to complete the work within the requirements: Chris and Melissa Haught, at 544 8th St., and Kathy Bohn at 730 8th St., received $500 matching-funds reimbursement grants for paint materials and/or labor for an exterior painting project.
The Spearfish Historic Preservation Commission established the Paint Grant Program to assist residents of Spearfish with the financial cost of painting residential, owner-occupied properties built pre-1950. The commission seeks to inspire and promote pride of ownership and to protect historic architecture.
