If you’ve driven along Main Street in Mankato recently, you would have noticed multiple houses being picked up and moved.

Mayo Clinic Health System purchased two homes a couple years ago with plans to purchase the neighboring houses when they came up for sale.

When they eventually did, the hospital purchased them as well and now the plan is to move three of the homes with one already being demolished because it wasn’t close to meeting code.

The remaining three houses will be moved in the coming weeks and Mayo plans to use the land for green space around the hospital.
