Historic Bramwell Pioneer
Bramwell Pioneer, Alberto Peraldo: Builder Historic Bramwell Presbyterian Church, settled in Bramwell in 1886, two years before the town was incorporated, and created some of the area's most outstanding buildings. Among his most striking achievements are the stately Bramwell Presbyterian Church and the Bank of Bramwell building. "There was a big rock quarry behind the Thomas home," Leo Peraldo recalls. "Everything was done by hand. We would clear off the topsoil, drill into the stone, set charges, and blast off the rock. We worked in stone 20 feet high."
