(I’ve featured several vintage newspaper photos of houses being moved here on the blog, although I have yet to find one showing the Neuman farmhouse being relocated.)
Anyway, as Rick explained in his email, "I know you are something of a fan regarding moving houses, so I thought you might appreciate this move caused by the Ohio Turnpike crossing Gulf Road.
"The house was moved 500 feet south of its original site and the address went from 826 Gulf Road to 370 Gulf Road. The move was documented in the Chronicle-Telegram of July 9, 1953.”
Here is the C-T photo with its caption.
It sure is. Here’s how it looks today – none the worse for its short trip – courtesy of the Lorain County Auditor’s website.
Special thanks to Rick Kurish for sharing his reminisces and research.
