The grand Victorian people of the 1880s were picked up and moved six blocks from Franklin Street to Fulton Street.
The giant BMX moved it at a speed of one mile per hour and cost 400,000 dollars. More than a dozen city agencies agreed to relocate.
There is nothing to see here, just a historic Victorian house in San Francisco walking down the street! Today, it has been moved out of 6 blocks at a price of more than $400,000. It is located near Turk and Franklin, with a great location and will soon have more than 60 apartments. @abc7newsbayarea

This move is by no means easy. Wires, parking meters and street lights were removed for movement.The municipality had to rearrange some bus routes
The six-bedroom, three-bathroom house still retains the original wood and “anchors” from the 19th century.
The movers say that houses like this are worth keeping rather than demolishing.
