A Moving Experience

I always like to report on House Moves. In this case we are speaking about the Weaver house is Granite Falls Minnisota. This house was due to be demolished as it is located in a flood plain. As the Federal Government "reclaims" areas that are prone to regular flooding many historic homes or in some cases whole neighborhoods or towns are lost.

Fortunately this was not the case here. The town offered the home for relocation! The main Historic structure built in 1878 is being moved and the rear later addition will be salvaged. This is a prime example of how towns should approach the issue of demolition. House Moves are expensive but typically the restored home is well worth the cost.

More information, in case you'd like to follow the process or learn more about the history of this home please visit:
