After months of fund-raising and preparation, the Oxford House finally made it's journey through Stephenville's downtown streets Tuesday to its' new home at the Stephenville Museum grounds.
"If we had a parade permit, we would be riding on the front porch!" laughed Robin Ritchie, Stephenville Museum director.
In order to travel safely travel , the street department were forced to swivel traffic lights out of the street. Crews also had to carefully maneuver underneath power and cable lines, clearing some by less than an inch.
The first floor traveling in two halves, landed on the museum grounds where it will be placed on the foundation and reassembled.
The second story will make the same journey in a matter of days and be hoisted into the air again by cranes to complete the Painted Lady puzzle.
