Do you love the idea of restoring an old building?

Former Belleville Middle/High School building now the Buffalo Apartments in Belleville.

At the recent WeKan Conference hosted by the Kansas Sampler Foundation, there was a session on restoring old buildings. The session was hosted by Kelly Larson a Scandia native, now Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation director and board member of the Kansas Preservation Alliance and  Western Kansas Rural Economic Development Alliance.

Kelly provided this great toolkit for learning about programs and resources to assist with a project. Below are the links. Please contact us if you have an idea you would like to discuss in Republic County 785-374-3047 or email
