Historic 1895 Lilburn Home on the Move to Monroe

🚚 The Gist: The iconic 1895 structure at 127 Main Street, Lilburn, is set to be relocated to Monroe within the next two weeks, weather permitting.

🏠 The Details: A significant piece of Lilburn’s history, the 127 Main Street home, known for its past as a train depot manager’s residence and later the Hopkins family home, is preparing for a significant change. This historical structure, which has alternated between residential and commercial uses, will soon embark on a journey to Monroe. While Main Street will stay open during the move, residents can expect to see this piece of their town’s history embark on its new journey.

🏗️ In Context: Built in 1895, this structure holds historical value for Lilburn. It’s been a landmark on Main Street for over a century, witnessing the town’s evolution. Its relocation marks the end of an era for the old house but the beginning of another as it’s restored to a residential property in Monroe.

🔨 What’s Next?: Once moved to Monroe, the structure will undergo restoration to its original state, becoming a “forever home.” Meanwhile, Lilburn residents can look forward to the construction of a new restaurant, adding to the town’s commercial landscape.
