A call half an hour ago from a reader sent Gossips scurrying up to 900 Columbia Street to see what was going on. There is a dumpster in front of the building, window sash has been removed, and the roof is gone. Is this being done in preparation for moving the building?
A call to Daniel Kent, executive director of the Galvan Foundation, revealed that the house is being "disassembled"--taken apart down to its individual bricks, something some might call demolished--to be "reassembled" in the 200 block of Union Street. That's probably not what most people anticipated when Galvan announced its intention to save the historic house by moving it to another location.
