1974 photo of house being moved

While digging through old photos and slides to show our kids and relatives during their xmas visit, I found the photo of our house being moved. And with it, a surprise. The photo is date-stamped, May 1974. Ironically, that was the same year we moved to Northfield. Click to enlarge. I don’t recognize the dirt street or the trees or the white structure in the background so that must have where the house was located… approximately where the site of the current McDonald’s is now on Hwy 3. The other photo (not dated) shows the house after it was painted and the garage was added… including the little second floor deck above the garage. Approximately ten years later, the porch on the north side of the house was added.

We’ve been told that house was cut in half many years earlier and that that half was moved to its current location on Jefferson Road (two photos above).
