Preparations are under way to move the Lincoln-era Maisenbacher House five blocks north to its new home on Sunday.
The 19th-century building will be taken from its current location at 1028 S. Seventh St. to 503 S. Seventh St., where an old structure deemed not worthy of saving, the Lewis House, was demolished last week to make way.
On Tuesday, crews started putting 64 wheels — some motorized, some not — under the 300-ton Maisenbacher House.
