Sioux City, IA
Two old-fashioned, manual elevators may get replaced in a Sioux City building.
Rising costs and a change in ownership may require the switch to modern elevators. The elevators at the Insurance Exchange Building could get replaced this fall. The elevator's longtime operators say it would mean the end of an era, because the older machinery gives the building its charm.
The six-story building was constructed in 1917. From 1944 to 1948, it housed city offices after the old City Hall burned.
