Historic farmhouse moved, saved from demolition

October 4, 2014

A 153-year-old farmhouse that had faced possible demolition has been moved from its longtime perch along a central Indiana highway to a new, permanent location.

The Kincaid House was moved Saturday to a new site about a half-mile north of where it had long stood along Interstate 69 in the Hamilton County town of Fishers, WISH-TV Channel 8 reported.

The two-story brick home's was moved to a two-acre plot donated by Navient, a student loan company, after the home's original property was sold to a developer.

Project architect Darren Peterson says "it takes a mountain of people" to move a building as heavy as the farmhouse.

The old farmhouse is now owned by Nickel Plate Arts, which will determine over the next few months its future use.

A crowdfunding campaign helped pay for moving the house.
