Historic mansion relocated by barge in Maryland

A Maryland mansion built in 1764 took a trip on the water Wednesday (September 25).

The brick home was being relocated from Easton to Queenstown - a distance of less than 20 miles by land, but the home's size made it too difficult to transport along roads.

Named the "Galloway house," the home was shipped more than 50 miles by barge to its new location, according to local station WBOC.

The Baltimore Sun newspaper reported that the owner purchased the home, but wanted to relocate it to a waterfront property. The move is estimated to have cost nearly one million dollars.
