Have you ever seen this house? It’s The Kincaid House, an Italianate-style historic farmhouse that sits at the corner of 106th Street and Kincaid Drive. The home was built in 1861 by the Peter Flanagan family using clay bricks made on-site. It later was owned by Loma E. Kincaid, the founder of L.E. Kincaid and Sons Meat Market.
After facing demolition this summer, thanks to the efforts of Indiana Landmarks and the Noblesville Preservation Alliance, this Civil War Era home will not be destroyed. Navient, the loan management company located on USA Parkway, has donated two acres of its land for The Kincaid House to be lifted and moved less than one half-mile down the road to its permanent location.
The move will take place October 4th and will cost roughly $115,000. The Nickel Plate Arts and the Noblesville Preservation Alliance, with help from Hamilton County Tourism, created an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help raise monies to move the house.
The foundation has been dug out and beams are in place through the basement windows and the walls in order to help with the lifting of the home onto a flatbed truck for the move.

This is a home move that goes beyond the norm!
