LE MARS, Iowa (AP) - Crews have moved a historic log cabin in Le Mars, saving the structure from a planned demolition.

The Le Mars Daily Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1IxSmp5 ) workers moved the cabin Friday from the Plymouth County Fairgrounds to the Plymouth County Historical Museum. It took less than two hours to move the cabin, which is at least 115 years old, about 12 blocks.

The cabin was built in Sioux City for a judge’s servants. It was given to a Girl Scout camp and moved in 1923, then moved to another Girl Scout camp in Plymouth County in 1982. It was moved to the fairgrounds in 2004.

The fair board decided to demolish the cabin but agreed to give it to a newly created group that raised the $9,600 cost to move the structure.
