Remembering LB Brantner, Bairoil's Preservation Leader
July 28, 1950- July 5, 2015

AHW was deeply saddened to learn that LB Brantner was killed in a car accident earlier this week. 

LB first contacted AHW last September looking for resources to save the Town Hall in Bairoil, Wyoming, north of Rawlins.  After talking to us about our
Architecture Assistance Fund grant, LB researched the Town Hall and submitted what remains the most
comprehensive grant application we have ever received.

Architect Lesley Gilmore, who was selected to work on the Bairoil Town Hall Architectural Assistance Fund project called LB, "the best preservation advocate I've ever met."  AHW Executive Director Carly-Ann Anderson echoed Gilmore's sentiments, saying "LB embodied the spirit of AHW.  She was dedicated to using preservation as a tool to improve her community, and saw that the Town Hall provided a tangible link to the past that could be used to educate people about the heritage of Bairoil."
Though LB is gone, the Town of Bairoil is working to finish the Town Hall project in her stead.  An application to place the building on the National Register is in progress and the town engineers are looking to implement the suggested repairs to the building.  The Alliance has established a memorial fund in LB's honor to help the community complete their project.  

If you are interested in donating to the LB Brantner Bairoil Town Hall Memorial Fund, please send your contribution to AHW, PO Box 123, Laramie, WY 82070 or
donate online.  Funds are being kept in an account sponsored by First Interstate BankYour contributions are tax deductible to the full extend of the law, and will be used directly for preservation efforts for the community's town hall.   

Thank you, LB, for all you have done to protect Wyoming's historic places and spaces; we can aspire to echo your enthusiasm and vision.
