BREAKING NEWS

1902 Victorian Home Relocated

KSAL StaffNovember 23, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A two-and-a-half-story Victorian home has moved to new spot in north Wichita.

Months of planning led up to Sunday’s move of the 240,000-pound home. QuikTrip bought the 1902 home for $203,000 to allow for a convenience store expansion. The home then was donated to the Historic Preservation Alliance, which found it a new location. QuikTrip paid an additional $100,000 to help move the house.

Historic Preservation Alliance president Greg Pike praised city of Wichita and Westar Energy for their help. The move involved taking down street lights, traffic signals and power lines, as well as trimming trees.
