The relocation of the Morton-Brittain Historic Home is set to take place Monday night at 10 p.m., and for residents, it means a major detour.

Traffic will be re-routed from Rocky Fork Road to Maxwell Lane during the move.

The home’s moving route will temporarily close Nolensville Road from the home’s current location at 7186 Nolensville Road to a new location at 9927 Sam Donald Court. The route’s destination is located in the town’s Historic District.

The home, which faces demolition, is being moved as a preservation effort by the Nolensville Historical Society, the Heritage Foundation and others. Announcement of the home’s new location came Thursday, Jan. 31 after the town’s Historic Zoning Commission unanimously approved a certificate of appropriateness allowing the home to be relocated to the applicant’s property.

Once moved, the Nolensville Historical Society will begin restoration efforts on the historic home.
