Brooks House gets new support

Posted: Updated:
BRATTLEBORO, Vt. -

A historic building in Brattleboro gutted by fire last year is getting new life.

The 140-year-old Brooks House on Main Street burned back in April of last year. It housed 10 businesses and about 60 people.

The select board Tuesday agreed to loan $100,000 to a group redeveloping the property and approved a $750,000 grant that would allow the project to move forward.

Renovating the five-story building is expected to cost $18 million.
