Opinion: Osborne House move impressed

I’ve watched with interest the past few weeks as the Osborne House was prepared for its move, unable to believe such a large building (118 tons!) could really be moved down the road. I would have been one of the watchers in the predawn chill had I not had to be at Porter that morning for minor surgery.
I’d still hoped to catch a bit of the move, but when we drove past that corner at 7 a.m. the house was already gone, so I hugely appreciated Evan Johnson’s detailed account, the many photos, and the video. And thank you to the college for treating this 200-year-old house respectfully, rather than tearing it down.
