UPDATE: The move is expected to take place on Christmas Eve, according to a story by the Journal Times.

But the Caledonia Historical Society still needs $12,000 to re-construct the machine shed after its moved to Linwood Park.

Original story: The Caledonia Historical Society plans to move a machine shed built in the early 1900s from 8414 Botting Road to its historical campus at Linwood Park at 7300 5 Mile Road in Caledonia.

The relocation plans are expected to begin on Monday, Dec. 8 and be completed by Dec. 9.

Royse Meyers, a member of the Caledonia Historical Society, said the machine shed will be used as a storage facility for donated items. We Energies donated the building to the Caledonia Historical Society.

The building will be cut and half and moved, but the historical society doesn’t have the funds to pour the foundation. However, members of the Historical Society are selling frozen Derango’s Pizza’s to raise money for the project. Orders need to be placed by Dec. 18 to be delivered in mid-January. If interested, contact the Caledonia Historical Society.
