The old farmhouse was facing demolition until the community rallied to save it. The house was built in 1861 and played an important role in the town’s history, most notably as the home to Civil War General Thomas Morris Armstrong.
A crowd-funding campaign raised the funds needed to relocate the historic house. Nickel Plate Arts in Nobelsville, IN now owns the home. An official plan for how to use the house will be made over the next few months.
Peter Brubaker, a Wolfe House and Building Movers Estimator, was interviewed by Indiana Public Media about the project, and the local business reviews site Angie’s List also highlighted the project.
