Traffic on one of Seguin’s busiest roadways came to a halt for a few minutes as a large truck pulled out of a driveway, towing half a home behind it.

A small crowd gathered in front of the Seguin Silver Center and near Westerholm-Koehler’s insurance building, as the company Brown and Sons House Movers, based out of Austin, moved the second half of a 111-year-old home onto Court Street and out of Seguin.

I'm so glad someone is taking care of this beautiful building! We passed by the empty lot on Friday and I was heartbroken thinking that someone had torn it down. Now it will have a new life in Kingsbury with a new family❤
