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.

While the new Holy Ghost Fathers Seminary's first class is taking preliminary study for the priesthood in the former LaPointe home at 4133 Washtenaw Rd. (square building, center), the new buildings for the larger complete seminary are rising around it. In News Photographer Maitland LaMotte's aerial view, the U-shaped structure in foreground will be the high school building. Dormitories, now in use, are beyond the house, and the chapel framework is at right of the dormitories. Henry deKoning of Ann Arbor is the contractor for the $500,000 project. Washtenaw Ave. cuts across the lower right corner of picture.
