Back when this undertaking was beginning 20 some years ago, I firmly believed that the economics of such a large restoration of a sizable commercial complex in the downtown of a small town were not sustainable. I am so glad I was wrong. Kudos to all involved.

The place was a mess when I saw it 34 years ago. It looked better when FLWBC met in Mason City in the 90s, but still not good enough, especially the bank. Guess I will have to take another trip.
