Historic House Moved

Anyone looking out the window Tuesday, Nov. 25, would have seen a house on wheels moving slowly through downtown. A small red brick house was moved from the corner of 15th and Walnut Street to 1111 S. Henderson St. The move took over 3 hours.

New owners Jon Lawrence and Jan Sorby bought the house from Bloomington Restorations for $1000, with covenants requiring preservation of the exterior and restrictions on resale. according to their website, BRI is a private not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Bloomington and Monroe County's historic architecture and old neighborhoods.
