Budget Allows Special Funding For Tryon Palace

While it may not be as much as the governor wanted, Tryon Palace will get a a little extra cash once he signs off on the approved budget.

Governor Pat McCrory initially wanted Tryon Palace to receive nearly $634,000 in special appropriation funding in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 fiscal years.

By passing the most current draft of the state's budget, both the House and Senate agreed the historic site would get a bonus in addition to it's annual $2 million budget.

For this fiscal year, the palace will receive $500,000 in a non-recurring allocation of funds. For 2014-2015, the amount would drop to an extra $100,000.

The original Governor's Palace in the colonial capital of North Carolina was built in 1770.
