PLANO -- Crews were at the Heritage Farmstead Museum Friday morning moving one of North Texas' oldest structures an inch at a time.

"We've been anticipating this day for so long and now it's finally here," Kathy Strobel with the museum said.

The Carriage House is an original structure in Plano, sitting on a four-acre farm dating back over a century.

"We're surrounded by new buildings and people are so surprised when they come here and are transported to another world," Strobel said.

With a $75,000 grant from the City of Plano, the museum was able to move the structure and start work on renovations and repairs. Both city and museum leaders say this kind of investment in North Texas' history is important.

"I want the younger generations to have that connection of where this all came from," Strobel said.

Specialized crews spent hours moving the structure inch by inch.

They hope to have the entire project done in two weeks, in time for the fall school tours that will start soon.
