Alabama Historical Commission officials say they're working to save some of the state's historic sites from being sold despite an audit outlining the possible sale of some landmarks.
Commission Director Frank White told Al.com on Monday that a five-year plan to cut costs and boost revenue are expected to help the organization stave off sales of popular historical properties. If sales do become necessary White says Fort Morgan, Old Cahawba and the state Capitol building won't be among the sites being considered.
Ten landmarks have been selected for Alabama's new tax credits for rehabilitation projects.
The Alabama Historical Commission says more applications were submitted than the $20 million in tax credits that are available annually. The commission says 10 projects have qualified for 2014 tax credits and 10 more are on a wait list.
