Lewistown Public Library – Croatian Sandstone Restoration

Lewistown Public Library was built in 1905 with help from funding provided by Andrew Carnegie.  It has been open to the public for 115 years. The project involves preserving sandstone stonework with the original Croatian masonry methods, and restoration of deteriorating scrollwork and other decorative stone-carved features.  The project will also highlight the Croatian community that settled in Lewistown.
