This weekend, while members of The Bain Project were in the old Bain water treatment plant, they noticed that the historic dedication plaque to the building had been stolen off the wall. The plaque dedicated the building as part of the PWA program under Roosevelt in 1940 (the smaller plaque of the two).
The plaque is a wonderful piece of U.S. history, and Empire Properties is asking for your help in getting it back. A $250 reward has been offered information leading to its return. Please call 919.834.8350 if you know anything about it.
