m.- r in December 2019. Being on the national register gives such properties prestige and allows eligibility for preservation financial incentives. The board forthe Ukrainian Cultural Institute (UCI), based in Dickinson, re- cently voted to make the award. The FPHS collected donations to hire an architectural historian to com- plete a 50-page nomination that was used by the State Historical Socie- ty of North Dakota and later the US. Department of the Interior — as the basis for having the building named to the register. The building went through floods in 1948, 1950 and 1997. The FPHS, however, continued to restore and preserve the building because it defines a part of local history and represents the social and ethnic heritage of mul- tiple communities. ‘ p The FPHS is deserving of the Ukrainian Spirit Award because of its effort to preserve the church building and because of its success with hav- ing the building listed on the National Register, said Richard Volesky, the UCI board member who nominated FPHS for the Spirit Award. The former eastern North Dakota church is older than the state itself. 3, The building dates to 1885 and was built by Icelandic immigrants from both sides of the border of the United States and Canada. By 1937, the : Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Church congregation decreased in size. ,.< 2 That same year, Ukrainians who had settled in- the area, but were unable to financially build a new church, purchased the building. It was renamed the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of St. John. The number of Ukrainian parishioners at Pembina, however, declined from the 20 families in the 19205 to only five families by 1987. The church disbanded and the prop- erty that year was given to the FPHS, with an understanding that Ortho- dox services could still be held. The 1,400-square—foot building now is referred to as a church muse- um. The FPHS members also call it their "little jewel on the prairie.“ "We’re very'honored that UCI selected the Fort Pembina Historical So- 1 ciety . . .,” said Pat Cayley, FPHS spokesperson. "It truly is the best piece at ‘f‘ . of news we’ve had all year as with COVID our group was inactive this year, much to our dismay. However, we look forward to 2021 and hope- fully will hold an event at the church museum to formally roll out the des- ignation of St. John’s listing on the NRHP and at that time Will present .1 the SpiritAwar ." '.'.‘ «i 1; The FPHS acted in collaboration with the Pembina County Historic Preservation Commission. "This group was instrumental in the process as they have assisted with prior nominations and also cost shared in fluid— ing," said Cayley. ‘ The UCI continues to maintain its North Dakota Ukrainian Hall of Fame, which is similar to the Ukrainian Spirit Award. However, the Hall of Fame is usually reserved for recipients who have made lifelong or multi-year contributions as defined in UCI guidelines.
