House Moving Museum



HD Snow learned the business of house moving early, first working at his father’s company at the age of 12. When Snow started his own business in the 1960s, he began traveling the country, trading tips with others movers. Along the way he discovered that third, fourth, and fifth generation movers weren’t interested in the family business. With the threat of house-moving history falling to the wayside, Snow set out to save it. He set aside a half-acre of his business’ land to display a collection of vintage artifacts. The House Moving Museum began unofficially in the 1970s and opened as a full-fledged museum in 1985. The museum carries a collection of historic moving equipment, from rollers and boomers to dollies, jacks, and bars. There are also plenty of pictures showing equipment in use, including images of buildings being pulled by horses.
