Bonanzaville gets financing to complete projects

WEST FARGO – Bonanzaville has received the $800,000 in funding necessary to complete work on its Lucien C. Barnes pavilion and the remodeling of the existing museum, the organization announced Wednesday in a news release.

The funding was acquired through a partnership between USDA Rural Development and a five-bank coalition, according to the release.

Bonanzaville needed $500,000 to pay for already-completed construction work, and the additional $300,000 will complete the expansion project that includes a new museum, event center, classroom, concession area and historical library and archive.

Construction is scheduled to resume the second week of April, and the main museum is expected to be completed in four to six weeks. The second- floor event center and library are expected to be completed by the end of June, the release said.
