Watch the Moment A 139-year-old House Is Lifted And Moved To New Location In The US (Video)

A video captured the moment a 139-year-old Victorian house in San Francisco was lifted from its old address and moved to a new address.

In the video, the historic house in the heart of the Golden City was loaded onto a truck and moved from 807 Franklin St. to 635 Fulton St., San Francisco.

Hundreds of onlookers could be seen taking photos and videos.

Speaking about this, Phil Joy, a veteran house mover who oversaw the move, told the San Francisco Chronicle that moving the house, built-in 1882, took several years to plan.

“We had to get 15 different city agencies to agree to this” Joy said.

The Chronicle reported that Tim Brown, a San Francisco broker who was the owner of the six-bedroom house, paid about $400,000 in moving costs and fees.

A 48-unit, eight-story apartment complex will be built on the old site where the house used to sit, the newspaper reported.
