The Cornerstone Project, NFP is a small group of volunteers (currently 10 in number) in Lanark, Carroll County, Illinois who are dedicated to the preservation and restoration of our historic downtown. We, through charitable contributions and donation of our time and labor, have been actively working to preserve our downtown structures. The gazebo in our city park was rebuilt through our volunteer efforts. In 2007 we were able to save the Shumway building from being demolished. It is now the home of our local pharmacy. Currently, we are the owners of the Valentine Building a lovely structure Circa 1878. We are working to ready this building for sale so that its future owner will be able to concentrate on the running of their business and not be burdened by renovation of the structure. We have done major restoration to the exterior of the structure but are in need of a heating system, and other interior finish work.
