There goes a house

On our way to the downtown farmer's market today we noticed an old house moving down SW Columbia. It was the historic Ladd Carriage house. When it was threatened to be torn down so they could build a parking structure, preservationatists quickly assembled and the next thing you know, they move the house, build an underground parking lot, then move the house back to its original location on top of the garage. I love Portland.

The house made it through its move without a scratch. This sign post, not so lucky.
