Ribbon-cutting at the Kibbey Building

Kibbey Building co-owners Barb Hagstrand (center, left) and Jeff Mitchell (center, right) celebrated the official ribbon-cutting for the new-and-improved East Main Street location. They were joined by Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors and members of the public for the opening. The building houses three businesses: Tannin Wine, Thrivent Financial and Van Gogh’s — four apartment lofts are located in the upper levels of the building. Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting was the latest step in the new life of the Kibbey Building after a devastating 2012 fire. The structure was first built in the late 1800’s, according to Marshall County Assessor’s Office information.
