ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Charlsetta Taylor moved into her North St. Louis home in 1945 — her brother was born in that house.
The three-story red brick home built in 1891 was prepped to be moved Wednesday afternoon outside the 97 acres of land where the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency will build a new western headquarters.
The house was to be moved to the street Wednesday, and then to St. Louis Avenue – 7/10s of a mile down the street – later this month.
Taylor said she had no other option than to move her home outside the area, otherwise it would have been demolished.
