Ann Arbor Area Community News
The long-awaited move of the Polhemus House from East Washington St. is underway. Scheduled to take 6 hours according to workers on-site, operations commenced at 7 am. However, as of 9:30am, the house was stalled on Huron, approaching the intersection with Fifth Ave.
The house, supported by a grid of steel I-beams, seems to be transported by a self-powered lift with individually turning sets of wheels. The house turned too wide from Division onto Huron and brushed up against trees on the north side of Huron. City workers in cherry pickers were dispatched to cut off branches so that the house could pass by. Additional workers continue to prepare the rest of the house’s path to Pontiac Trail.
