Toby Tollefsen, the great grandson of this building’s original owner was relieved the men took a shine to this 100-year-old building since there were plans to tear it down.
As a contractor, Larry knew he had his work cut out for him but he didn’t anticipate having to move the building through the streets of Kearney, Neb., to a new location in the country. With the original stucco, red clay roof tiles and glass globes intact this home still stands as a landmark with a colorful past.
