Moving An Ohio Farmhouse

This house was being moved from its original location near the road to a new foundation a couple hundred feet behind the original location. It is sitting on a frame of steel I-Beams on a large truck. The gravel in front of it is where the new foundation was being built.

The owner told me that it has been in her family for 160 years. The old foundation is crumbling and unsafe, and part of the house was in bad shape, so they cut off that part and moved the rest of the house. You can see on the right side of the house where the other section was removed.

This is on the north side of Ohio State Route 2, between the Indiana State Line and Casebeer-Miller Road (County Road #106), in rural Defiance County, Ohio. It is a couple miles southwest of Hicksville.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
