Southwest Bricktown gets a new neighbor as IHS moves its third house in a year

It took about an hour to move a house from 30th Avenue to West Avenue A Thursday but a year to work out the details.

Union Valley Bible Church purchased the home, behind the church, at 3005 N. Halstead in January 2017. The church was experiencing growth and needed more parking space.

The 1950′s two-bedroom home had been well cared for and valued at $78,000.They didn’t want to tear down the house. So they found a solution by offering it to Interfaith Housing Services, said Pastor Steve Hodgson. They accepted the gift, making it the second house IHS has moved in a month and the third in a year.
