A historic Victorian-era house in San Francisco, the 141-year-old ‘Englander House’ was moved six blocks from Franklin Street to Fulton Street.
It is said that the house was moved to a new location, within six hours.
“This is phenomenal to see this humungous seven-bedroom house being moved,” said Wanda Ramos who lives near the original location of the residence.
A resident, Gary Carter who lives near the new location of the house also admitted that the process of moving the house was quite amazing.
“This is pretty big, pretty amazing,” he said.
The relocation of the historic building caught the attention of many San Francisco residents. The historic event was recorded from every angle by hundreds of city residents.
Some describe it as a scene in the Pixar movie ‘Up’ when a house is moved by a balloon.
“There’s been a few glitches on the way. Trees that were in the way, stop signs, lights, and signs and what not,” said Lana Costantini with the San Francisco Historical Society
“They hit a light pole right there at the corner of Golden Gate and Franklin and also they hit a couple of trees,” said Eddie Ramos who closely watched the move.
However, tree cutters were getting ready, while the road was closed and police controlled.
Historians say it was the first time since 1974 such a Victorian-era house had been moved to San Francisco.
With the relocation, 50 and 60 new units can be built at the old location.
“I was up on the 11th floor at the time looking down and I just could not believe what was going down, I thought this is one for the history books,” added Eddie Ramos.
However, the transfer process is not an easy task.
Electric lines, parking meters, and street lights were removed to allow the house to be moved. In addition, some bus routes also had to re-route.
Nothing to see here, just a historic San Francisco Victorian home coming down the street! Today it’s being moved 6 blocks for more than $400,000. It’s old location near Turk and Franklin will soon be home to more than 60 apartments. @abc7newsbayarea

Separated Since Babies, This Identical Twins Finally Reunite After 36 Years
Identical twins Molly Sinert and Emily Bushnell were separated at birth in South Korea and adopted by different families. Molly went on living in Florida while Emily in Pennsylvania. The siblings spent most of their lives totally unaware of each other’s existence and little information about their birth family.
But everything changes after Emily’s 11-year-old daughter, Isabel wanted to make a DNA test to explore her heritage.
Isabel said, “I wanted to do the DNA test because she was adopted. I wanted to find out if I had more family on her side.”
Meanwhile in Florida, Molly also decided she wanted to take a DNA test to find out more about her mother’s history. The database confirmed her relations with Emily.
“(The results said:) ‘You share 49.96% DNA with this person. We predict that she’s your daughter’. This is obviously not right because I’ve never gone into labor, I don’t have children.”
Shortly after, she figured out that she must be her sister. They contacted each other but decided not to have a video call until they met in person.
Even though Emily didn’t feel comfortable taking the test, but finding out about her twin makes everything so clear.
“Although I have family who loves me and has been wonderful, there was always a feeling of disconnection. Finding out that I had an identical twin sister just made everything so clear. It all makes sense.”
As the twins got to know each other, they discovered more and more similarities between themselves.
Emily added: “Our senior prom picture…we were both wearing a beaded dress with a strapless style and our hair was exactly the same.
Emily concluded by describing the reunion as ‘the happiest moment of her life’.
