DALLAS (AP) A former bank building in Dallas constructed in 1899 has a new address but the same look after being moved brick by brick and rebuilt.
A formal grand opening will be held July 7 for the two-story Liberty State Bank Building. The structure was unveiled Friday at its new site near the Dallas Farmers Market, a few blocks from the original location .
City Councilman Adam Medrano praised efforts by developers to preserve the structure, one of the oldest buildings in downtown Dallas.
Tanya Ragan of Wildcat Management says taking the building apart and transporting the pieces was almost like a jigsaw puzzle.
The restored building already houses a yoga studio and a restaurant.
