National Trust grants $2,500 to Bush Childhood Home

The 1949-founded National Trust for Historic Preservation has granted $2,500 to the George W. Bush Childhood Home Inc. in Midland for consulting fees toward restoration of the Bush family home at 1412 W. Ohio Ave.

“Most significant to our project is the endorsement and support of the National Trust for Historic Preservation,” said Bill Scott, president of the George W. Bush Childhood Home Inc. The endorsement contributes “a certain amount of gravity or weight to the project,” Scott said. “It will help us with our “fund-raising” via grants from foundations and other causes, including the Texas Historical Commission, and from individual and corporate donors.
