Project UPlift NFP is currently working towards establishing our official Headquarters at 620 Buckbee St., Rockford, IL 61104. Picture above shows The Buckbee Seed Warehouse in the early 1900's then the building was 3 stories high and 40,000 sq ft. The building in the early 1930's was added a 4th floor with a total of 51,000 sq. ft. Herman Buckbee and the Buckbee Seed Warehouse building was the former Headquarters of the Testors Corporation. We are presently engaging in a complete overhaul of the building, to bring it to proper code, and are preparing for a complete Green movement in an effort to develop the neighborhood of Rockford as well as to utilize it to continue the fight against homelessness.
Below are pictures of the Herman Buckbee Building today. Above is the Buckbee Building in it's original state. It was used as a Seed Farm and Distribution Factory in the early 20th century.
Help Project Uplift NFP establish its new headquarters while bringing the Buckbee Building back to life. We plan on renovating it by "Going Green". Bring back its connection with the community of Rockford, Illinois!!!
