SELIGMAN, Ariz. -- Plans for the historic Cottage Hotel north of Route 66 in Seligman call for transforming the building into a full-time visitor center and museum.

But before that happens, the Seligman Historical Society will do a survey for asbestos and lead paint. A grant from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will aid the efforts.

The $9,000 grant comes from a fund for property that suffers from known or perceived environmental contamination.

The historical society said the hotel built in 1912 has housed railroad workers, cowboys and expectant mothers. It is open to the public only a few days per year.

The society said it plans to renovate the hotel to display historic artifacts from the community before turning it into a visitor center and museum.
