The former neighbor of the dearly departed Rosefriends Apartment building, will be slowly and laboriously moved from its temporary storage place up the street back to Columbia and Broadway.
Starting early in the morning of October 25, Settle Construction, the move contractors, will gently raise the Carriage House off its temporary supports using the hydraulic jacks in the wheel assemblies positioned under it and being the process of moving it back into Columbia Street for the journey back to Broadway and its new/old home.
Friends of Ladd Carriage House will have an information tent in the South Park Blocks adjacent to Columbia Street during the move.
