Christmas Eve fire started years of rebuilding

Posted:

BALLTOWN (KWWL) -- Breitbach's Country Dining Restaurant burned to the ground for the first time December 24, 2007.

The restaurant, founded in 1850, was the oldest operating restaurant in Iowa.

The owners rebuilt, reopening the doors that next June.  But just ten weeks to the day after the first fire, it burned to the ground a second time.

The owners rebuilt again.
