Marion County residents traveling to Des Moines via Highway 5/92 may have noticed a house on wheels adjacent to Highway 5, just past the Runnells turnoff, between Pleasantville and Hartford that sat there for months. That building now has a home in Knoxville. Wednesday morning, movers transported it from that location to McKay Drive in Knoxville. The original home had to be relocated after the highway was rerouted several years ago. It took several hours to move, delaying travel on Highway 5/92 for a time, and arrived at McKay Court at approximately noon Wednesday.
