TEXARKANA — A southwest Arkansas courthouse is getting more new windows thanks to a state restoration grant.

The Texarkana Gazette reported that Miller County has received $54,500 for the repairs.

Miller County Judge Larry Burgess said the windows on the south side of the courthouse built in 1939 have been damaged by weather. County employees say the windows are rusted and offices get wet when it rains.

The grant was provided by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program. The program has awarded more than $2 million in grants for projects in 33 counties.

Burgess said the county asked for $150,000 to replace the windows. He called the grant a "drop in the bucket" but says every dollar helps.

Burgess said the county will keep applying for grants until the windows are repaired.
