AFTER years of planning and fund- raising, the vision of the Willa Cather Foundation finally came to fruition, re- sulting in the transformation of a nearly block long structure—commonly referred to as the Moon Block building—comprised of five sepa- rate bays attached to the Opera House into the National Willa Cather Center. While the Red Cloud Opera House building was already serving as home to the Willa Cather Museum and Willa Cather Foundation, the restoration of the Moon Block building included the creation of additional museum space, state-of-the art archives storage, research and office space, commercial storefronts, apartments and a green room connected to the Red Cloud Opera House. An addition on the back of the building houses an elevator, staircase and passage to the Opera House, fulfilling ADA and egress requirements. In total, the project encom- passed the renovation of 22,700 square feet and an addition of 2,200 square feet. Tru-Built's Steve Powell and Tucker Lange served as superinten- dent and project manager, respectively.
