Preserving history for generations

A replica of a landmark building now stands in Maxbass, thanks to the co-owners of a local construction company

Steve and Todd Farden, co-owners of Farden Construction, Inc., bought the building that once was a bank and then a post office. The building was in poor condition so it was torn down and a new replica building of the old one was constructed there in the exact spot.

Andrea Johnson of The Minot Daily News tells the story of the project in Monday’s edition.

Rebuilding a landmark as the building in Maxbass is a way for generations to remember the past in their community.

In the case of the building in Maxbass, the Fardens will be making use of the building as a secondary office site.

Many buildings have been torn down in communities and replaced with others while some buildings have been left to deteriorate.

But a project as the Fardens have completed, with Future Builders of Minot contracted for the construction, gives something to look forward to, in the words of Steve Farden.
