The newly restored front doors to the Carnegie Resource Center in Mitchell. Mel and Karen Pooley spent 140 hours restoring the doors to their original condition as part of the remodeling project. While they worked, a white door was placed on the center, which led to many thinking it was permanent.An anonymous $50,000 donation was received by the Carnegie Resource Center in December. Mueller Lumber furnished and installed the temporary door. (Mitchell Area Historical Society)2 / 2
