Still no plan for historic Keokuk arches

Posted:

KEOKUK (KWWL) -- Although a month has passed since the discovery of masonry arches and vaults under the rubble of a downtown Keokuk building, there's still no set plan to preserve the work.

But that could change this week when Keokuk's historic preservation commission tells the city council its ideas on how they should be preserved. They have drafted plans to turn the area into a public park.

It's believed the arches were part of a former storm sewer system and the vault was used to store mix spirits in the late 1800's.
