Bonanzaville Museum in West Fargo Now Has New Church

The Associated Press

The Bonanzaville museum and pioneer village in West Fargo has a church again.

A year after a fire heavily damaged the 118-year-old church that was on the grounds of Bonanzaville, the South Pleasant Lutheran church near Christine has been transplanted to the museum.

WDAY-TV reports the church rolled through roads at about 10 to 15 mph until it arrived to its new home. Moving the building also involved frequent stops along the way and a temporary shutdown of the interstate.

The church dates back to 1890. Bonanzaville expects to have it up and running by November.
