PLATTEVILLE, Wis. —Platteville’s Rountree Stone Cottage will experience a round of preservation and beautification with grants recently provided by Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin.

Grant County Historical Society, which owns the cottage, received $3,175, which will cover the costs of planting new trees, installing a new sign, replacing a front porch railing and completing stone tuckpointing, according to a press release.

Work will be completed at the site over the next six to eight months.
