Warren building had no roof and it was made into a Community Center!
Every now and then, we need to check our points of reference. Prairie Skyline's point of reference for the rehab of the Wayne (Palace) Hotel project is the Taralseth Building in Warren Minnesota. A similar building to the Palace, it didn't even have a roof when the community took another look at their downtown after the 1997 Flood and decided to save it. Please empty your mind of your mental picture of the run-down Palace Hotel and replace it with a vision of the restored Taraseth Building which has on its main floor a large community center, something we need here in Crookston.
