The St. Ansgar Historic School Project was conceived just under a year ago in the hall of the First Lutheran Parish Center after a community meeting to discuss the fate of the former elementary school in St. Ansgar. The group was legally incorporated as a 501(c)3 in January and took ownership of the building on April 1, 2017.
The last 6 months since taking ownership of the building has been a whirlwind of activity. Mostly good, a little not-so-good, but all progress toward making South Square a sustainable reality for the community of St. Ansgar, Iowa. The Board of Directors is busy every day forming the structure that will keep South Square running for as long as the community wants and needs it.
So, with that, we are officially launching the South Square website. This is intended to be a home for news about what's happening in the building, as well as a hub for information about how to rent space at South Square.
