Vote to send preservation dollars to UU sites.

Surely you're reading The Interdependent Web, the UU World blog that highlights the best of the UU blogosphere each week. (After all, it's the only place I've been blogging lately.) But I'm crossposting something I wrote there because I think you'd want to help some historic UU sites in Massachusetts get a piece of $1 million in historic preservation funding.

Old Ship Meeting House, by Timothy ValentineTwo Unitarian Universalist churches in Massachusetts are among 25 nominees for $1 million in preservation grants from the American Express Partners in Preservation program: the "Old Ship Meeting House" of the First Parish in Hingham (the only early Puritan meeting house still standing and the oldest wooden religious structure in use in the United States) and the United First Parish Church in Quincy (the "Church of the Presidents" where U.S. presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams are entombed). Vote for your favorites once daily through May 17.

Other UU-related sites include the Perkins School for the Blind (see UU World, Jan/Feb 2005), Mount Auburn Cemetery (see UU World, Spring 2007), and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House (see UU World, Summer 2007).
