GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – An historic home in Golden is getting a new address after a big move overnight.

The home was moved from its original address at 1812 Illinois to 410 Ninth Street.

The Victorian home was originally the home of John Gray, the man who owned the last gas station before tourists would drive up Lookout Mountain.

The School of Mines needed to move the home off of the lot to make room for a new welcome center, so it gave the house away as long as the new owner agreed to move it.

The new owner, “Easy Street Properties” teamed up with “Mammoth Structural Movers” to secure the house on a truck. The 36-foot wide and 35-foot tall home was rolled through the streets. Power lines were moved to make room for the home.

The owner said the home will be used for the “Golden Well Being Collective” a local healing arts group.

The cost to move the home cost $65,000.
