In 1905, the Benjamin Green House in Brunswick was moved from its original location at the corner of Maine and Cumberland Streets to 259 Maine Street.
The photograph shows a train blocking the house from moving over the train tracks on Maine Street.
The railroad company was afraid the house would damage its tracks. After hours of negotiation, the train finally moved and the house could continue on its journey.
