RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- One of Raleigh's first Modernist houses was successfully moved and saved from demolition Saturday.
The historic home was supposed to be moved last Saturday, but the move was pushed back because of rain.
The house was built in 1953 and located in the 600 block of Transylvania Avenue.
Workers were out early in the morning Saturday to saddle the home up on a trailer and move it down the street. The home was successfully moved about seven miles away to a lot on Delmont Drive.
"It was so cool. I've only seen that one other time. And just as such a production. How much technical support it takes to do that. It's very exciting to watch. We were out here," Ginny Craig said.
