The arts settlement, for example, will use $90,720 to augment its campus with 10 buildings from an early 20th-century compound built around the former Strawn citrus grove and packinghouse in DeLeon Springs.

The buildings, to be relocated, will be used for such things as a livestock barn and a citrus industry photo exhibit, said the settlement's grant writer, Monso Tatum.
