UPDATE ON OLD STONEY RENOVATION
Following an in-depth study of Old Stoney, the Frankfort City Council voted for a major restoration and upgrades to the building which is expected to be in excess of $4 million.
“Right now, we’re in the stages of carrying out specific construction designs for Old Stoney so we can put this project out to competitive bidding this fall and hopefully get this project online by the end of this year or the first of next year,” said Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes.
Additional upgrades are needed such as modernizing the restrooms. Officials also want to relocate the Jonson Fountain currently in TPA Park to the south side of Old Stoney, the original intended location of the foundation by the sculptor.
To help with this project, the Old Stoney 2015 Preservation Fund Drive has been established.
Some former students who graduated from Frankfort High School when it was located at Old Stoney and other community members indicated a desire to help fund the cost of the preservation project. if you would like to join them and make a tax-deductible contribution, please send a check made payable to the Clinton County Economic Advancement Foundation (CCEAF) and mail it to: Old Stoney Preservation Project, Attention: Jim Siegfried, 301 East Clinton Street, Frankfort, IN 46041. Please put “for Old Stoney” on the memo line of your check.
