A historic mansion is making moves today.
The Harriet Rees House is the last-standing building in the 2100 block of South Prairie.
It's being moved to make way for the new McCormick Place Entertainment District.
It's more than 100-years old and weighs nearly 2 million pounds.
Crews prepared months for the move. They've already successfully jacked the house up and moved it down the street.
Now all they have to do is move it back into the new space and drop it down. This should happen later today or tomorrow.
The homeowners son Anthony is on site, supervising the move.
His father purchased the piece of history in 2001, when it was in shambles. They worked to restore it back to it's original beauty, complete with nine bathrooms and a hand crank elevator.
"It's a piece of Chicago history. It's been in the city since 1888," he admitted adding he's glad the house was moved instead of wrecked and destroyed.
