House Relocation. Material: paper. Size: 3 1/2" x 6". Description: black and white photograph of half of a house that was located on the property purchased from Jack Weller at Elm Avenue and 2nd Street S.W.; house is on wheels, truck pulling house; Loon Lake and EACO Mill building in background. Possibly being moved into its new location at 314 2nd Avenue N.W.
The east half of the house ended up being moved to 314 2nd Avenue North West. Donor's father, Archie Johnson, bought the west half and moved it to 407 10th Avenue South East, Broughtons Addition, Lot 38 and East 1/2 of Lot 37, Block 4. Waseca Herald 18 October 1945: George Minske and Clinton Wahlberg were successful last week in selling the duplex on the property they recently purchased from Jack Weller at Elm Avenue and 2nd Street South West. The two grocery-meat merchants are busily engaged in clearing the large lot this week. It is possible that the contractors will be able to start laying the foundation by the end of the month. Mrs. Lillian A. Miller purchased the east half of the building last Tuesday and has engaged Sam Bateman of Mankato to move the house to a lot she is buying in the city. The west half of the house was bought by Archie Johnson on Thursday of last week and will be settled on a lot somewhere in the city.
