Historic Building Moving

Sturgis, MI / June 2014

Sturgis, Michigan, a friendly town of 11,000 residents in Southwest Michigan had a plan to move and revitalize its aging Railroad Depot. The Depot was in need of repairs in an out-of-the-way area of town. Plans called for relocation to the vibrant downtown area for better visibility, where it could be re-purposed and restored as an interactive children’s museum. Wolfe House Movers was contracted to lift and move the masonry depot to its new location in June of 2014. You can see the step-by-step process here.
