Preservation grant will help restore USF’s 130-year old John C. Williams House

July 24, 2020 - The University of South Florida's St. Petersburg campus has received a grant from Florida Division of Historical Resources that will help support the preservation of the John C. Williams House, a historic landmark built in 1891 and moved to the USF campus in 1997. The state has awarded $17,837, which USF is matching in cash, employee time and grant administration for a total of $35,674 towards the creation of a historic preservation master plan. Susan Toler, St. Petersburg campus associate dean of USF’s College of Arts and Sciences, said the funding will help USF create a master plan to preserve the building, and anticipates this being the first step toward a full restoration and preservation of the property.
