  • Historic barn roof finds a new home - Prairie Plains Resource Institute
    came to rest atop its new home the Prairie Plains Resource Institute PPRI Educational Center on Griffith Prairie west of Marquette People asked me is it bitter or is it sweet seeing it moved and I said it s both It was kind of hard seeing it moved but I was glad it could be used Mildred said It was going downhill and I always said I d rather it could be used for something than see it fall down Mildred said the barn was already there when she married Clarence Sands and moved to the farm in 1938 The house was built in 1912 and we figured the barn was built shortly after that she said At that time it was the Cadillac of barns It was very unusual Because the barn brought back so many memories of her married life Mildred said she wanted to watch the roof being moved from start to finish a two day event The move brought PPRI one step closer to realizing a dream born some 27 years ago in its articles of incorporation To provide a center where persons of mutual interest in the natural history horticulture agriculture human culture sociology development and welfare of the plains may exchange ideas for the benefit and welfare of the members thereof and the state and the nation The fact the barn roof will remain in Hamilton County and be used for educational purposes gives Mildred great satisfaction That s what we re so happy about it s going to good use going to a good cause she said Latest News Sherman Ranch highlighted in Prairie Fire Newspaper June 6 2015 NTV Showcases Prairie Plains on its 35th Anniversary May 1 2015 Celebrating 35 Years of Prairie Plains April 29 2015 Restoration Plan Seeks to

  • Old barn will help make new Prairie Plains Education Center building - Prairie Plains Resource Institute
    almost resembled a spaceship rising sharply out of the bleak landscape and it drew a parade of PPRI employees local officials and curious neighbors When the roof was ready to be moved onto the foundation its width forced Williams Midwest to perform two moves After the first move halfway over the foundation the beams on which the roof was rolled were shifted and the roof was moved the rest of the way The roof will form the frame for a 9 000 square foot building that will be the home base for PPRI s annual SOAR day camp in which students explore the history and science behind prairies rivers and Nebraska s other natural resources The Whitneys also foresee the building being used for lectures school trips and retreat space for writers artists or businesses Ground was broken for the building this fall and most of the foundation was set through more than 300 volunteer hours Now that the foundation is set the institute hopes to enclose the building and install some utilities over the coming months Whitney said He estimated that phase would cost about 50 000 Whitney said PPRI plans to finish the center in phases as sufficient funds come in He hopes the final costs come in under 500 000 but a firm budget has not been set At the site the awe at both the sheer scale of the move and its symbolism were evident Wide eyed PPRI employees and members snatched looks inside the barn while it sat on elevated beams before its move Others took hundreds of photos posting many of them on the institute s new Web site at www prairieplains org Wayne Mollhoff a PPRI board member and former Albion resident said that watching the barn finally be moved was a surreal
