We made great progress in 2022, fully enclosing the back of the building with new walls and roof. In the coming year, we need your support to cut stone and reattach it to south facade.

Restoring a Main St. Landmark

Bottineau County Bank – built in 1900 of stones carried by glaciers and shaped by pioneer hands – is a Main Street fixture in Bottineau, N.D. Now known as the Stone Bank, the building began to show its age and was near condemnation in 2011. We formed a nonprofit, bought the building, disassembled its back to repair the foundation. Now we're ready to put it together again with handicap accessibility and a sturdy frame. We plan to enclose the back in fall 2020 with support from donors like you. Ready to give? Details at right. Preservation ROCKS!
