  • Moving house. No, literally moving a house

    Starting before dawn Sunday, hundreds of sightseers with cameras and cell phones, chased a 139-year old, two-story Victorian house through the streets of San Francisco on a four hour, half-mile trek that seemed like a West Coast Mardi Gras parade.

    Police used loudspeakers to caution the crowd, “People, please get back on the sidewalk. There’s a house coming down the street.”

    The 1880s grand Victorian was picked up and moved six blocks from Franklin Street to Fulton Street. Giant dollies carried it about one mile an hour and it cost roughly $400,000 dollars to move the home.

    According to the San Francisco Historical Society, it’s been almost 50 years since a Victorian was last relocated within the city.
