BEAVER DAM, Ky. (WFIE) - The city of Beaver Dam received a $12,000 Community Challenge Grant from the AARP on Wednesday.

City officials say that will fund their next historical legacy project, as well as help refurnish some of the town’s historic landmarks.

They say as part of a downtown renaissance, old wooden doors will be turned into artworks showing the city’s history.

Officials tell 14 News the doors will then be mounted on the outwalls of existing buildings.

The mayor of Beaver Dam says he hopes this will boost tourism in the area.
