Photo gallery: Moving day for the Brewer House

The Brewer House, a building on the National Register of Historic Places, made its own historic move on Thursday, April 3, 2014. Goodwin House Moving of Washington, Iowa, transported the 117-year-old house 10 blocks through Cedar Rapids to its new location at 616 10th Ave. SE. Spectators lined the route on the cool and cloudy day and a marching band – friends of homeowners Greg Young and Dawn Stephens – played tunes as the house made the half-day trek from its previous site at 847 Fourth Ave. SE. The couple will live in the home once it has been restored. Find more information on the background of the move at and see images from the day here.
