The Carriage House was extensively renovated in the late 19th century — perhaps in response to changes in farming technology. Later, the building survived a significant fire.
In 1965, the Carriage House was moved so that the City of Waltham could widen Gore Street. Unfortunately, the new location was a low, damp spot on the landscape.
So, in 2014, the Carriage House was moved again, this time to the site where it stood in the early 1800s. (The 260-foot-move took five days of preparation but only 20 minutes of moving!) At the same time, the historic building was comprehensively restored.
