A Part of History

Pleasant Hill Lake is created.
The house was originally built around 1900 and was located in the Newville, Ohio. When the Army Corps of Engineers commissioned a dam to be built on the Mohican River and the surrounding valley be flooded, the town of Newville was evacuated. Many structures were abandoned but others were moved to new locations including this house. There are accounts that the house was moved twice.

That's a big move.
