SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Built in the 1890s, the John Peirce Mansion has stood out on Sioux City's Jackson Street for more than a century.

Restorations began on the building about two years ago, and last year, it was opened to the public again for the first time.  

On Sunday, the mansion held an open house to showcase its renovations, back to a home. The mansion is often used for weddings, parties and other special events. Officials say a big reason the building has come together so quickly is because of efforts from the volunteers.

"It's taken us a while to find what works and what doesn't work because we're all amateurs, but so far, I'm knocking on wood here as we speak, we haven't had any total out and out disasters," said Patt Brenden, chair for the Peirce Mansion Committee.

The second floor bride's room was the most recent restoration project. The groom's room is next in line for repairs, and officials hope to have that done within the next couple of months.
