Riverbend Church Is On The Move
The old Riverbend Church, built over a hundred years ago, was moved to its way to new home at the Kingsburg Historical Society Museum, Thursday morning, February 4, 2016.
Historic Riverbend Church Move
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --
It was moving day for a piece of Fresno's history. The Cupola that once sat on the very top of the old county courthouse was moved from a downtown warehouse to it's new home, at the Fresno County Fairgrounds.
The move was definitely something to see. The 110 year old architectural feature was carefully carried through town with a police escort. The historic cupolas journey started at the historic entrance to Fresno on Van Ness Avenue. From there, it was a slow motion procession to the Big Fresno Fairgrounds.

The library project is spearheaded by London native Rob Isquierdo, now an English teacher at Hanford's Sierra Pacific High School. Isquierdo secured a 40-by-25 foot building to house the book shelves, study tables and technology center for the proposed library. The building is a former modular classroom from Dinuba's Jefferson Elementary School.
If a deal for the property is reached this week, there's foundation and preparation work that needs to be done before the building is moved in. Dinuba House Movers, Inc. relocated the donated building at a reduced price, Scott said. The building is now at a storage yard waiting for the next move.

An hour after the back to school rush at 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, Dinuba House Movers hit the road and began the long, slow process of moving a large steel building to its new home at the city’s Public Works Yard on I Street.
The 75-foot long and 41-foot wide building was transported less than two miles from South Frankwood Avenue, near Floral Avenue, to the city yard. The building is close to 20 feet high.It took close to an hour for Dinuba House Movers to make the trip to the building’s new home.
