    Default KY stone fences

    We are considering buying a farmette that has some stone fences that need repair. At one time I thought there was state money available to assist in rebuilding these fences. Any body have input?

    The midwest? I'm lost.


    I was able to find this link (you will have to download the PDF)

    KY Statute on Dry Stone Fences that talks about a rock fence preservation fund.

    Although considering the current economic climate, I don't know how much money they have to give out.

    Might contact Lexington-based "Dry Stone Conservancy"

    back in 2007 they atempted a proposal before the State that would provide the fence owners a tax credit for half the cost to repair or restore dry-laid stone fences and 35 percent for repairing fences made with stone and mortar -- provided the walls are at least 50 years old.
