Workers are making a second attempt to move the Holy Cross Catholic Church building across the campus of North Carolina Central University.
The little stone church will have a new home at the corner of Formosa Street, alongside NCCU's Shepard House.
Workers tried to make the move last weekend, but complications stalled finishing the job for a week.
The church is being moved to make way for a new $25 million nursing education building.
School leaders saw the value of the old stone church and didn't want to knock it down.
"It's a beautiful structure with great historic significance and it will add immeasurably to the views on Fayetteville Street," said NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms.
The Holy Cross congregation has moved to a new larger facility, so the school plans to use the old church building for meeting space.
