Historic home jacked up, moved behind Sea Horse on Pass-a-Grille

Although it moved once back in the early 1900s, it's probably safe to say that this was a smoother move for the oldest home on the Gulf beaches.

Workers from A-Team Structural Moving Engineers of Oldsmar moved the 126-year-old historic Zephaniah Phillips home Tuesday to a new location at Pass-a-Grille. The home was moved one block and located in back of the Sea Horse Restaurant on Eighth Avenue.

Carl Hollenback, owner of the Sea Horse, purchased the home from owner Kenneth Herman for $1. Hollenback plans to use the home as vacation accommodations for visitors.

Zephaniah Phillips, a veteran of the Union Army, constructed the little frame dwelling in 1886, using lumber brought from Pensacola on a schooner called the Silver Moon; it was relocated once before in 1919.
