OSAGE, Iowa (AP) - The Osage School Board has decided not to tear down the last of the historic Cedar Valley Seminary buildings to make way for an expansion on the Lincoln Elementary School site.

On Tuesday night the board rescinded its March vote for demolition, and it formed an exploratory committee to flesh out a proposal to move the building elsewhere on the site. Under the proposal, the building would be restored to permanently house memorabilia of Mike Johanns, a native of Osage who later became governor of Nebraska, a U.S. senator and U.S. secretary of agriculture.

Joyce Ruehlow is a member of the group that proposed moving the building, and she says it also could house the office of the Osage Education Foundation.
