Old Settlers' Pavilion, better known as Stump Lake Pavilion, may be added to the National Register of Historic Places. This may help the park preserve the pavilion, especially as Stump Lake continues to rise.

The State Historic Preservation Board will be meeting in Bismarck tomorrow to talk about adding the pavilion to the register, but it may not make a decision tomorrow. Depending on how the meeting goes it could still take another year or two to get the 90-year old pavilion on the register.

Having the pavilion listed would help with upkeep expenses, as the floors are re-sanded and sealed every few years.

Odell Flaagan/Park Board President: "We'd like to get it on the historical register just in case we have to move it, we might get help if the flood waters keep coming.”

If it is added to the register the park board could save up to $25,000 on that move if it ever becomes necessary.
