An organization committed to restoring the historic Powell Airplane Refilling Station on Wennesday received a $15,000 endowment from Knox County.
County Mayor Mike Ragsdale presented the check to members of the Airplane Filling Station Preservation Association.
"We can now give the old gal a facelift," said association President Tom MIlligan. "She's long overdue, and it's about time."
