18th century house to be moved to Va.


An 18th century farmhouse has been purchased by a couple who plan to move it to Virginia and restore it. The timber-frame house was built in 1750. It will be dismantled, transported by truck, and reassembled on property in Purcellville, Va., owned by Craig and Terry Rosenthal. The move could cost as much as $60,000. Leonard Baum, an architect who specializes in 18th-century structures, will oversee the move. (AP)
