SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - A big move happened in Sioux Center on Tuesday. Two buildings of the Heritage Village moved across town.

The Klein House and Roelofs’ General Store moved from northeast Sioux Center to the new Heritage Village in southwest Sioux Center. The buildings traveled about six miles in about 1.5 hours.

The Kuhl House was donated by Dordt College in 2017. It was built in early 1900s on the Kuhl Homestead and was occupied by the Kuhl family for more than 100 years.

The house was moved onto a full basement in the new location.

Roelofs’ General Store has been in Sioux Center for many years. The Roelofs family donated store fixtures in 2011, and have been involved in the store, which has an early 19th Century general theme.

Two buildings were moved prior to this move. First was the church, a replica of the original first church built in Sioux Center in 1877. The second was a chicken coop.

More buildings will be moved soon, including the village school house and another house showcasing the early life of settlers in Sioux Center.
