HOUSTON, Minn. (UPI) -- Minnesota siblings whose family home is being honored as a Century Farm said an original 1858 cabin from the property took months to move more than 3 miles.

Donna Chapel, who lives a little more than 3 miles from the family farm in Houston, Minn., which is being honored at the Minnesota State Fair for remaining in the same family for more than 100 years, said she decided to bring her family's cabin to her property when her brother, Arlyn Frauenkron, needed it gone from the farm, the La Crosse (Wis.) Tribune reported Monday.

The siblings said they began moving the cabin in 2002 and the project took months to complete. They celebrated the accomplishment with an old-fashioned party for friends and family.

"When it was done, that's when the real value came out," Frauenkron said.

Chapel said she decorated the cabin with her mother's old dinner bell and a 1943 seed company calendar. She said she visits the cabin nearly every day.
