The Sioux City Museum's Peirce Mansion receives a new antique

Posted:
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -

Sunday afternoon, an open house was held at the Peirce Mansion in Sioux City. 

The mansion only holds two open houses a year and today's open house had a special new antique for guests to view.

On display was the George Hunzinger couch which dates back to 1869. 

The couch was donated by the Cohen family of Sioux City.

Peirce Mansion Committee members said the couch had to be fully restored before it was ready to be viewed by the public. 

"It took about three and a half years, I think, or four years before we finally got it back. We got it back in April, I think, of this year," said Harold Canny with the Peirce Mansion Committee.

The event lasted from 1 until 4 Sunday afternoon.
