Our beloved 1889 Northwestern Bank Building is a cornerstone of historic downtown Aberdeen. It is a beacon of architecture that enchants downtown visitors and invites them to explore our humble county museum. While the south and west facades of the building are in excellent shape for its age, the north and east sides of the building are woefully in need of masonry repair work that far exceeds minor maintenance.
The museum will be applying for a Deadwood Grant to help with the major costs of this project. This is a process that will involve the services of a building assessor and architect along with getting quotes from local masons equipped to do historical restoration work. Additional funds will be needed for professional fees leading up to submitting the necessary documents for a preservation grant.
How can you help?
Please consider a contribution towards our “EXTERIOR BRICK AND MASONRY REPAIR PROJECT.” Your funds will ensure the museum building’s exterior will last another century and continue to be a beautiful, historic downtown building for locals and visitors to enjoy.
Thank you for your support!
