The building is owned by ACIG and was completed on budget and on time on May 16, 2016. The building boasts a showroom and a storage facility to be utilized as a central hub, as McPherson is located between many of the locations in the region. ACIG would like to extend a special thanks to Prairie Landworks, Inc. (general contractor), 3Ten Studio (architect), and Farmers State Bank (financier) for their help in the completion of this project.

The University of Kansas hosted the tour of the Flag for Hope on March 6, 2016. Flag for Hope is a project designed by U.S. Army veteran Marcos Antonio. The goal is to collect approximately 3,000 to 4,000 American hand and finger impressions on a 9x5 canvas to create the flag of the United States of America. The flag will travel to 150 cities and roughly 300 to 400 locations in the United States. Upon completion, the flag will be highlighted at the Smithsonian Institute and other national museums. Anderson-Crain Principal, Graham Crain, collaborated with Marcos and his traveling partner, Don Goff, to organize the site visit in Kansas. The University of Kansas Men's Basketball team and coaches participated in the event. Coach Bill Self is one of the 50 stars on the flag.
