My uncle, Joe Mitchell, got a call to move this house from Trenton to Jackson. Never mind that he'd never done anything like this before...he's a semi retired custom home builder so he knows a little about home construction. Here's a vid from TN Crossroads showing part of the move.

That's awesome. The effort to perserve that piece of history was worth it.

Interesting and impressive! I'm always glad when some piece of history is spared.

I wonder how they re-attached those big posts at the corners that were cut for the move? I would guess with steel plates and bolts.
