GILBERTVILLE (KWWL) -
People gathered in Gilbertville Saturday to celebrate a birthday.
Not for someone - but for something.
The Gilbertville depot turns 100 years old Saturday.
The building was scheduled to be torn down earlier this year, but a non-profit group formed to preserve it.
Originally, the building was scheduled to be torn down, and a new bathrooms built along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail. However, the cost of a new facility would have been greater than the cost of remodeling the depot.
So the building has now made it to the 100-year mark.
Plans are in the works for the depot to have restrooms and fresh water for riders on the bike trail, and a community room is planned as well.
