Aiken-Rhett House is in the “This Place Matters” contest – $s to be awarded


From the South Carolina Archival Association list-serv 6.17.2011: 

Only 13 days left to cast your vote and support a significant historic site here in SC!

The Aiken-Rhett House is one of 100 organizations out of 265 that were selected by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to compete for funding in the This Place Matters contest.  Voting is online at the National Trust’s website and there are only three awards, so this contest will be quite competitive. The Historic Charleston Foundation could possibly win $5,000, $10,000 or even $25,000! These funds would allow for in-depth research of the slave quarters at the Aiken-Rhett House that would in turn lead to preservation and interpretation of these important buildings. This is the only South Caroline site on the list! 
During the one month period from June 1, 2011, through June 30, 2011 participants are able to support Historic Charleston Foundation.  
To vote:
Historic Charleston Foundation’s preservation page where you will be prompted to register (or log-in if you are already registered) to vote.  

Voters just need a valid email address and postal code, the National Trust for Historic Preservation will then email a username and pass code.  Once registered and logged in, visit
Historic Charleston Foundation’s page and click the vote button (shown below) on the right to cast your vote.   Please vote, then pass then pass this email on to your friends, families, contacts – everyone you know!
Thank you, because you know that This Place Matters!
