The historic Wilkins House has arrived on its permanent lot, now safe from the wrecking balls of progress. At 800 tons, it is the largest building ever moved in South Carolina – the moving rig contains 176 tires. The building was preserved because of its very distinctive architecture, and will be restored to much of the original design. The move was only a few blocks, but took 8 hours. Here are some other views of the move in progress:

      It’s on the corner of Elm St and Mills Ave – the address would be closest to 103 Mills Ave.
