Forest Grove

Workers from Goodwin Movers of Washington, Iowa, have begun the job of stabilizing the old Forest Grove School in Bettendorf and were on the site Monday. The 19th-century building was bowed in the middle of the two longest sides. A group of Quad-City area residents trying to preserve the structure is within about $5,000 of a $20,000 fundraising goal and has scheduled a Sept. 29 showing of the documentary "Country School: One Room - One Nation" at Pleasant Valley High School.
