The Sundance Main Street experienced a beautification project last month disguised as a trackhoe and a large group of men and machines; who over the course of two days, redesigned the corner at the nexus of the town square. These volunteers assembled to remove the North Pole Locker, a dilapidated building that had sat empty quietly occupying the corner of 2nd and Main Street for nearly four decades. After months of negotiations between the City of Sundance and the landowner, an agreement was reached to allow the debris from the building demolition to be hauled to the City landfill.
On a sunny weekend, a large number of volunteers climbed into the cockpits of trackhoes, backhoes and dump trucks, that were donated by generous companies and individuals, and with precision and determination removed the building and left behind an empty space. What next fills this empty space may be a VFW meeting hall and it's under discussion to possibly share its spacious corner lot with a pocket-park that could include pedestrian seating and green space. Stay tuned for more pictures and information as this Sundance Wyoming Main Street project continues.
We are renovating Sundance Main Street one phase at a time to make our town a more welcoming and functioning attraction for locals and tourists alike!
The next phase of the Main street project is the North Pole Locker on Main and Second Street. Below is one proposed idea for the new space.
We are renovating an old sandstone building that was once a High School. The building is nick-named Old Stoney.
The renovation has been ongoing for years funded by donations and we just recently received a grant for a major portion of the renovation. If you would like to be a part of the Old Stoney renovation project we could use your donations.
In conjunction with the building renovation we are removing an old school administration building to create a Historic park on the site next to Old Stoney, this park will be Old Stoney Park. It will be adjacent to Old Stoney and will have historic attractions including an old jailhouse, There will also be a stage for outdoor events.
