Dante Community Redevelopment Project
Grant Recipient: Russell County
2018 Funds Awarded: $269,000
Dante is a historic coal camp with rows of houses, remains of a company store and other visual reminders of coal mining from years past. The Community Association wants to share the rich history with visitors. AMLER Program dollars would be used to build connector trails to historic sites in the town and create eight miles of trails along an old railroad. With plans for an ATV trail from St. Paul to Dante, the number of visitors is expected to increase.
