Built in 1882 at 807 Franklin Street in San Francisco, the Victorian building is a venerable building known by its neighbors as the 'Ingrander House.' The relocation work began at 6:15 in the morning when the sky was still dark.

A semi-trailer with a two-story house slowly launches onto the road.

The street was crowded with about 600 spectators who gathered for some reason.

In addition, an eight-story apartment will be built where the Ingrander House was originally located.

It is important to leave it in a cold box-like building without rebuilding it. '
