Collecting buildings: -

Rural Hastings man collects history, one building at a time -

"Steve Bauer collects old buildings — he calls it his addiction.

It's a craving that started innocently enough with an 1855 log cabin. It later led him to take apart a Hastings church brick by brick and reassemble it on his farm.

The past two decades, Bauer has amassed a village of more than 50 restored buildings — a general store, blacksmith shop, saloon, one-room schoolhouses, a post office and even a jail — on a portion of his 160 acres about six miles south of Hastings."
