January/February 2003 Sandstone Craftsman

Location: Fargo, North Dakota
Status: Demolished

In May 2003, this 1913 sandstone-block house was razed, despite the valiant preservation efforts of local citizens' group Save the Jail. The home—attached to the Cass County Jail—had served as the sheriff's residence. When the county opened a new jail in 2002, the old jail and attached house were put up for sale. No buyer came forward, so the county moved ahead with demolition plans, even though the structure was on the National Register of Historic Places.
