August 11, 1992: Homes on Parade

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, located in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood, donates six houses to Habitat and Neighborhood Housing Services rather than tear them down to make way for its new parking lot. The two organizations orchestrate an overnight move to relocate the houses from Brookside to vacant lots in the city. Neighbors and media crews turn out in the middle of the night to watch the spectacle of homes parading down the street to their new locations.
