Chaney Grain Elevator, located at the historical complex at Oak and North High streets. The $4 million restoration project will add an event center to the complex, along with renovations of the 1880s-era structure. Brundige said the society received a $300,000 grant from the state and is hoping to secure federal grants as well. Those who participated in the groundbreaking ceremony were: Congressman Mike Carey, State Senator Michele Reynolds, Mayor Mike Ebert, Councilman Chuck Milliken, CWAHS President Bruna Brundige, Project Architect John Oney of Archall Architects, and project supporters Bob Wood and Todd Weiser.
