This spring, Pioneer Trails Regional Museum was one of two recipients of Preservation North Dakota’s Grassroots Grant Program. Pioneer Trails Regional Museum received $2,300 from Preservation North Dakota to paint the Union Prairie Church that sits on the museum grounds. The grant funded one-half of the project costs, while the museum funded the rest. Along with new paint, the grant money was used to stain the ramp, replace the door veneers, and seal the windows to prevent leaking. This work will not only keep the church looking nice, but will also prevent deterioration of the building, which was built in 1908. The work was completed this summer, so be sure to drive by the museum and check it out!
