Posted June 28, 2005 12:09 p.m. EDT

— An old house has begun a new journey in Knightdale.

Midway Plantation is moving two miles down the road to make way for a shopping center.

It survived the Civil War, but it is now retreating from development.

The plantation house is 157 years old and has been in the same family for seven generations. They decided to move it to a 46-acre site to preserve the rich history.
