Conneaut Lake Park is awarded a 25-thousand dollar grant to go toward the continued upkeep and operation of the historic Blue Streak roller coaster.  Officials say the Keystone Historic Preservation grant came from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.  Earlier this year, the entire park grounds met the criteria to be listed in the Commission’s National Register of Historic Places.

The Blue Streak reopened in 2010 after having been closed since 2006.  It holds the distinction of the American Coaster Enthusiast’s Classic and Landmark Coaster designations.
