House on a Highway: Busy Washtenaw Rd. had some unusually heavy traffic yesterday when this house was transported from Ann Arbor to its new site in the 4000 block of Washtenaw Rd. It stood originally on S. Forest Ave. near the Forest Ave. parking lot. On Friday the house was moved to a point near the Washtenaw Ave.-Stadium Blvd. intersection and "parked" off the highway over the weekend. Yesterday the slow journey was completed. It is shown here moving up the grade in front of the entrance to Pittsfield Village.
