PROJECT--"Brick Repair" Overview:
The Fraternal Temple building's external brickwork is only one unique feature that placed
the 1905 Community Center
building on the
National Register of Historic Places listing. Some of the bricks
came from Kendrick's Fruchtl Brick Company.
Generous grant and public support dollars, totaling
$11,450.00 in 2013, allowed for each of 4 story walls to have leaks and
crumbling brick areas repaired.
Phase 4 needs address crumbling rooftop tower edging and chimney bricks and
will improve the area's drainage as well as provide a
50-year total brick protective coating. Community
support can be provided either with a JKHF designated project contribution or
through the Buy- A -Brick fundraiser ($50.00/brick that can
accommodate up to two names) for the completion of this $25,000 final
phase. Thank You --
Northwest Farm Credit Services,
Inland Northwest Community Foundation's --
Community Strategies Grant, and J-K Recreation District
for 2014 funding to put toward our final phase of the exterior brick repair
completed on Oct. 10, 2014 a big part of Phase 4. Removing 100 years
of moss and dirt when the building was spray washed caused us to view
additional critical brick repair areas. The acquired $18,000.00
allowed him to repair roof drainage & par-pit wall issues and provide
critical brick restorations (filling cracks and holes) to 3 1/4 walls.
With $30,000.00 additional funding the balance of the final wall will be
made structurally sound and 18 windows will be restored and painted blocking
bats, insects and the weather from entering.
