A Stone by Stone Story

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 12:15 am by stonebankblog

Seeing the back of the Stone Bank dismantled doesn’t tell the whole story. Our stone mason, Joe Whetter, carefully removed each stone by hand. He has been at work since the end of November, and he meticulously removed stone from around a door and two big windows. As he worked, the back of the Stone Bank disappeared a little each day.

Gone with it is the fear of condemnation and demolition. But don’t worry: Our plan is to rebuild it over a new foundation.

Here is a slide show of the dismantling process. Thanks to Scott Wagar of the Bottineau Courant, who contributed these photos. (Please remember to “Like” our blog posts, because it matters to our Google ranking. Thank you!)
