MADRAS, OR -- Madras city officials are working to get an airport hangar listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. City councilors signed off on the nomination letter, earlier this week. Michele Quinn with Public Works tells KBND the application was about more than just the historic relevance of the building. "We were trying to get grants to fix it. The roof was leaking and the windows were leaking, and they do keep airplanes in there. Birds were getting in there and causing damage, so we were looking at grants for it. All the grants we looked at, we didn’t qualify for, your building had to be listed on the national Historic Register."
