The Mite Block wasn’t stucco, it was brick and decorative terracotta.
The original Mite was demolished in 1960. Earl Danard, owner of the Great North West Pioneer Village — something of a proto-Fort Edmonton Park located near Stony Plain — made a last minute attempt to save it, but found its cladding too fragile to move. However, Danard salvaged what he could from the original and built a replica at his park. The City of Edmonton ultimately bought his entire collection — buildings, farm equipment, weapons, artifacts, and all — in 1967 to help get Fort Edmonton off the ground. Included in the sale was the nu-Mite.
What happened to it afterwards is a mystery. Those involved with F.E.P. say it’s no longer in their collection. Some of the other buildings bought off Danard deteriorated before they could be rebuilt at the Park — perhaps the nu-Mite did too? In any case, F.E.P. has had perennial plans to rebuild the Mite. The last big push was in 2001 when they adopted a new masterplan, but it’s been shelved with the introduction of their 2011 plan.
