This one, moved to make way for a parking lot for the Muehlig Funeral Chapel on Fourth Ave., was photographed at a busy campus area intersection, S. State St. and N. University Ave. It was being moved to 259 Crest Ave. Strangely, the house was first transported east, on a selected route, although its destination was on the west side of the city.
