A house moved from its resting place of more than 50 years. A strange sight to see, a house cut in half and moved by truck, each section from Nickerson St., up Liberty St., thru the lot to Lincklaen Terrace and on to Ten Eyck Ave. The house, known as the Park house, was moved to make way for improvements at the Jr. College and has been moved to a freshly dug cellar on the property formerly owned by R.F. Jenkins on Ten Eyck Ave. We compliment the movers and the electric and telephone crews for their effort removing and replacing the wire service so efficiently.
