Old To New

Remodel, Restore, Revitalize

For decades, “downtown” was the hub of the economic and social lives of rural residents across North Dakota. Since their heyday in the 50s, small town business districts have been shrinking. Many small communities in North Dakota are on the cusp of extinction. As the rural population declines and the state’s agriculture-based economy struggles, boarded buildings and empty storefronts now dominate once prosperous streets. Seeking to reverse years of decline, some local organizations are taking steps to revitalize their communities. Across the state community groups and entrepreneurs with vision are rehabilitating old buildings and putting them to new uses — renewing their sense of identity in the process.
