MASON CITY, Iowa- We’re finding out that the Mason City train Canadian Pacific depot is structurally sound enough to move. Now the city just needs to find a place to put it and a use for it.
According to city leaders, a feasibility study has been conducted on the century-old building in mid-July. They said the study found the building can be moved.
The Canadian Pacific Rail Company initially wanted to tear the building down because it isn’t being used, but the city and Mason City residents are working to save it.
“It is part of our history and I think it’s our duty as adults to leave that history and heritage for the next generation,” said long time Mason City resident Phillip Baker.
