Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - A group in Valley City is fighting to save a historic structure on the verge of collapse.
This bandshell in City Park was built in 1930.
The last time it was used for a performance was in 2008, before it was severely damaged in the 2009 flood.
Now, the friends of the City Park Band shell are trying to raise $150,000 to repair the local landmark.
Becky Heise - Friends of the City Park Bandshell: “The North wall is on the verge of collapse and it's just being held up. Other than the foundation walls, it's on some wooden posts. And if that foundation wall goes, it might all collapse.”
The Valley City park district has had several flood repair projects in the past few years.
That is why the friends say they decided to help out with the bandshell.
