October 20, 1992

The Greater Patapsco Community Association will receive the prestigious $1,000 W. Boulton Kelly Prize today from the Baltimore County Historical Trust.

The association will use the money to develop a National Register Historic District in the western Baltimore County community of Granite.

Seven other individuals and community groups also will receive grants at the Trust's ninth awards ceremony at 5:30 p.m. today in the Orangery at the Hampton Mansion, a National Historic Site in Towson.

The other grant winners are:

* The Friends of the Oliver House in Chase, for continuing efforts to preserve the area around a home designed by Robert Mills, America's first native-born architect.

* The Relay Improvement Association, for repairing an old fire house, now used as a community center.

* The Black Rock Particular Primitive Baptist Church in Butler, for repair of the roof and other items.

* The Mount Gilboa A.M.E. Church in Oella, to replace two supporting piers and floor repairs.

* Lynn F. Beattie, for restoration of a barn at Northcote in Phoenix.

* Ann B. O'Neill, for authentic shutter replacement on a residence in Glyndon.

* Katy Browne, for restoration of the stone wall around the old Gunpowder Meeting House in Cockeysville.

The grants, which are awarded in competition, may be used to implement a project or to boost fund raising on a project in progress.

The Kelly award is named for Mr. Kelly, an architect and founder and former chairman of the Baltimore County Historical Trust Inc.
