Since I last posted in May, the address has been corrected to 1404 S. 49th Ct., which sounds right. The map link is for 1466, which puts it right at 15th St, which is not where it was.

This address is wrong. It was on 49th Court just south of 14th St. on the west side of the street. I went to St. Anthony’s Catholic school a block south of there throughout the 60s and walked past it every day.

It was demolished in the early 60s and a house was moved, yes, moved onto the property. Back then it wasn’t unusual for houses to be moved off one property to another, and I remember two instances of this in that area in the early 60s. Pretty unforgettable to see a house going down the street.
