(S.D.) - New discovery delays move of historic SD building
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - It will be a couple of more days before the oldest building in Rapid City has a new home.
The company handling the move of the historic Pap Madison Cabin from Halley Park to the Journey Museum delayed operations Friday in order to complete the transfer of the building's fireplace.
Northland Building Movers owner Scott Schauer sayd workers discovered they could salvage the original burn pit with the brick fireplace.
Schauer calls it a good delay.
The cabin was built in 1876 and housed the city's first museum. It was moved to Halley Park in 1926. It has been empty since 2006.
The cost of moving the building was originally estimated at $7,500, which is being covered by donations.
