Following the dedication, refreshments were served.

The program reminds residents that when the 1883 Stutsman County Courhouse was threatened with demolition, Mary Young passionately advocated to save and restore the building. Faced with Staunch opposition, Mary established, “Project ’83,” a group of Jamestown citizens dedicated to saving the building, creating awareness and raising funds for its restoration.

Mary passed away on November 14, 2015. In January 2016, the State Historical Society Board honored her legacy by naming the historic Clerk of Court’s Office, the “Mary Faith Young Room,”  as a gesture of memorial and remembrance to her legacy and tireless efforts to save the courthouse.

The efforts are continuing.
