Roof trusses on the Rock Cafe going up.

It appears the Rock Cafe in Stroud, Okla., is shooting for a reopening in May — the one-year anniversary of a devastating fire that gutted the historic building.

David Burke Historic Preservation, based in Perry, Okla., is the main contractor on the reconstruction project. It has a Web page that details the ongoing work, including lots of photos and an article from the Lincoln County News. A lot has been happening at the restaurant site in recent weeks.

Rock Cafe owner Dawn Welch has posted a lot of photos on her blog, also.

Needless to say, this is really good news.
