Moving A Victorian House To Cape May

I have a great story for you guys that I wanted to share.

This past June we shared with you a story about The Avalon House. We have the entire linked down below but for those who don’t know it was a Victorian house that was built in 1895.

Moving A Historic House To Cape May

The house, which is built in an Queen Anne-style, was one of the very last remaining Victorian houses on the avalon island.

In 2017 the house went to bank auction and was sold to developer, Jerry Raffa. Raffa wanted to rip down the house and replace it with a two story home.

One of the old families of the home came up with an agreement with the developer to move the house.

At the time they did not have the land to move it that week so they hired a company to dismantle the house in a few pieces and then haul it away to a storage facility. 

Over the past month land was acquired in Cape May and readied for the house.

Today the Avalon house made its long trip from the storage facility to it’s new home at Texas Ave in Cape May.
