It began before the sun rose and ended at noon Saturday.
And over that time, Admiral House Moving of Goffstown, NH took 252 years of Belmont history for a half-mile trip through town.
Saturday's move of the Thomas Clark House required five-and-a-half hours of careful and deliberate driving on Common Street and Concord Avenue, cutting the branches and limbs off numerous trees and finally placing the pre-Revolutionary War home at a temporary location near the Skip Vigilrolo Skating Rink.
And Belmont could see the Clark House on the move in the near future as negotiations continue to place the structure on a lot on or near Concord Avenue.
See the video of the move, a YouTube video and submitted photos of the day on this web site.
