The idea of jacking up a house and moving it to a new location has fascinated me for a long time. Consequently, I've featured quite a few stories with that theme on this blog over the years.
These posts included this one that was moved to make way for the Ohio Turnpike (1953), this one in Elyria (1956), this one in Amherst (1960), this one in Oberlin (1960), this one in Lorain (1960), and this house in Avon (1964).
Well, here's another one for the collection. Its photo and accompanying caption ran on the front page of the Lorain Journal on Feb. 5, 1964.
In this case, although the new location – Long Avenue between 10th and 11th Streets – was spelled out pretty clearly, it still wasn't easy finding it using the 'street view' function. I had to 'fly by' several times and examine the aerial views from different vantage points before I finally made a positive I.D.
And the house is still there at 1044 Long Avenue.
