CRESTVIEW — The Historic Preservation Board has received a $7,300 gift from a member of its 2001 board.



Former board president and Mayor Jerry Milligan presented the check from retired banker Marland Wordell to the City Council at its Monday meeting.



The money was designated for use by “the Historic Preservation Board to be used to continue its work in the historic preservation of downtown Crestview,” Wordell stated in a letter to Council President Shannon Hayes.



Milligan said Wardell was particularly enthused about a proposal to recreate the former Crestview depot, which was demolished in the 1970s.



He asked, if the board saw fit, to apply some of the funds toward that project, Milligan said.
