Local Man Saves Historic House from Demolition

(Gillette, Wyo.) Mike Cote just couldn't stand seeing a piece of history destroyed. When the Rozet man and his wife read that the 107 year old house on Gillette Avenue was going to be torn down to make way for a law firm, they decided to do something about it.

"We spent the next week and a half getting everything taken care of to move the house." You may have saw the results yourself on Thursday, either in person or on our site . The home was lifted on to a flatbed and moved on down I-90 to Rozet, to a property near the Heptner Ranch.

"It reminds me of the house I grew up in here in town," Dustina told County17. They greatly appreciate all the help getting the home moved so quickly and efficiently. #county17 #news -- *Brenda Kirk* Community Maven for | 614.940.7121 Twitter | Instagram | Facebook PitchEngine™ | *Connecting Communities* | Twitter | Facebook
