In 1934 discussions were begun with a Bismarck architect about the WPA funding application process to build a community hall. Local bonds were sold to raise money to purchase land, procure design services, and obtain materials as the community’s local match. A local builder was selected, and prairie rocks were used in constructing the Moderne building. A basketball tournament was held in the hall in 1938, and in 1939, the WPA-funded workers constructed concrete sidewalks under a separate grant. Later additions to the building were a fire hall, jail, stage, and dressing rooms.
