Moving the Morelli House: A Mid-Century Modern Miracle
In the late 1990s, the Junior League of Las Vegas needed permanent headquarters for its burgeoning membership. Combining this need with its mission of historic preservation, the League found a historic house scheduled for demolition and decided to move it to a new location. Easy, right? Well, not exactly.
This exhibit gallery, with images by Fred B. Couzens and text by Carole Cosgrove Terry, takes you through a brief history of the project and the challenges the League had to conquer to finally end up with a house to save. Accompanied by images of the early-morning relocation of the Morelli House, this story is truly a miracle of Mid-Century Modern conservation.
