Rocking a Restoration
PRESERVATION ROCKS! We are restoring and finding a new use for the Stone Bank -- built in 1900 of stones carried to North Dakota by glaciers and shaped by the hands of pioneer craftsmen. In use for more than 100 years, it fell into disuse and was threatened with condemnation in 2011. Our nonprofit bought the building to save it and make is useful again.
We took apart 20 feet of the back of the building to repair the foundation and are ready to rebuild, using the original hand-cut stones to restore the façade. We need to pay our contractors to enclose the building -- a $65,000 project. We have a $20,000 grant from the Historical Society of ND. Your contribution will make an immediate difference AND will make you a TOTAL ROCK STAR. Thanks for your support. stonebank.org.
