Push to save Keokuk arches

KEOKUK (KWWL) -- A move is under way to save some huge brick arches found under the rubble of a three-story building that collapsed in downtown Keokuk last summer.

The arches were discovered last Friday, as the city was working on removing the debris.

The Keokuk Historic Preservations Commission believes the arches are part of the city's historic sewer system and should be preserved.

It has asked the city to stop the clean-up to identify the arches and determine if they're worth saving.
