VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) _ Officials with the Barnes County Historical Society Museum are hoping to save a two-story duplex built in 1900 that is considered one of the most architecturally significant homes in town.
Museum curator Wes Anderson says that locals have dubbed the house ``Pink Flamingo.''
Valley City has obtained the home as one of its buyouts for permanent flood protection. It must be bought and moved by the end of March, or it likely will be demolished.
City Administrator David Schelkoph says he's opened the home up five times to potential buyers with no luck.
He says the house was built as a single-family home before being turned into a duplex. Bringing the home up to code will require elbow grease and money.
