SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — The Longfellow Building on Morningside’s campus will be coming down Wednesday morning to make room for a brand-new learning opportunity for college students.
A demolition team is scheduled to start tearing down the building is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. on April 14, helping pave the way for the college’s new Rosen Ag Center, which will include a greenhouse, an outdoor classroom, and a test plot area.
The head of Morningside’s Ag department said the new facility will provide many hands-on experiences.
You know, we’ve gotten really involved in the local food initiative with our Morningside garden providing food right to our local campus, and so we’re going to get the opportunity to continue that at a much larger scale,” said Tom Paulsen.
The demolition was originally scheduled for Tuesday at 7 a.m. but was rescheduled due to additional time needed to turn off water and sewage in the building.
