I The Ely-Winton Historical Society is beginning a building project. Our storage building on 325 West Shagawa Road is in very bad shape and we have concluded that it is better to replace the building than to try to patch up a 70+ year old concrete block structure with failing walls. To this end we have applied to the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board for funding and have received part of it. Even with help from the City of Ely we find we are still short and so are reaching out to our membership and friends to help us out. We are asking you to help us with a one time donation or as a sustaining member for three or five years. We are a 501c3 organization so your donation is tax deductible.
