Tattoo artists expand creativity into community

“I did the outside of my business because I want the town to look cool. I’m trying to inspire people to say, ‘Ooo, competition. Let’s do this. Let’s make the whole town look like this,’” Crystal Scarff said. “Honestly, if I didn’t get wore out and didn’t have this full-time job, I’d paint everyone’s windows. I love making the town look festive.” This image shows her work at Free Spirit Boutique. (Photo by Kim Corpian)

In addition to painting the INKspiration windows, Crystal Scarff created a 3-D installation using pumpkins, styrofoam and insulation. (Photo by Kim Corpian)

Work on McGregor Masonic Block continues, with goal to complete project in spring 2023


Demolition work and structural repairs and modifications are wrapping up this fall on McGregor’s historic Masonic Block building. According to Matt Aust, president of Black Swan Developers, the goal is to complete the multi-million-dollar project in spring 2023. (Photos by Audrey Posten)

The Masonic Block’s history and original architecture will be incorporated into the renovated spaces. Pressed metal ceilings will be among the historic touches.

Once renovated, the Masonic Block will include three commercial store fronts and 11 residential suites.

During demo work, one section of the building's back wall, from the ground level to third floor, pulled off the building. That prompted an entire section to be rebuilt. “This is something that would have happened regardless of our work and probably would have caused the whole building to be torn down,” said developer Matt Aust. “I think this is a prime example that, if this development wasn’t taking place at this time, the building might not have been saved.”

Located at 134-138 Main Street, the Masonic Block was built in 1866. It is 15,000 square feet.

“This building has a ton of history that ties into the city itself. From the Masons to the Odd Fellows, there were numerous businesses and organizations that were located in this space over time,” Aust said.
