Wyoming Main Street has awarded a Greybull developer a Historic Architecture Assistance Fund grant to help develop a plan for renovating a downtown gem.
The century old Mead Building has been partially boarded up for most of the last 50 years, but owner Neal Foley is dedicated to returning the iconic hotel to its prime.
“This building has served the public for many years,” Foley said. “It was, and is intended to be again, a functioning hotel, with additional space for local businesses.”
He added that he has appreciated the support of his community as he undertakes this project.
The architecture grant can provide building owners with structural analysis, ADA requirements, schematics and other assessments. Those plans can inform future redevelopment.
