Parker Center launches rejuvenation project

October 20, 2013
By FLINT McCOLGAN - Staff Writer ( , Minot Daily News

The Parker Center, first envisioned in the 1930s and finalized in 1948, was once a grand old hotel. It even housed then-President Dwight D. Eisenhower during the construction of the Garrison Dam in the 1950s. But there was a difference in style in 1986 when the Minot Commission on Aging acquired the ground floor for the Parker Senior Center. An $800,000 renovation effort, though, will remove some of the institutional look to invite a warmer, more welcoming atmosphere.
