Historic Turner house gets moved to a new home

Overnight Wednesday, workers from Above All Structural in Largo moved a Florida Vernacular-style bungalow, built in 1915 by Alfred Turner, from S Fort Harrison Avenue in Clearwater to Heritage Village, Pinellas County's living history museum in Largo. The roof of the house had to be removed for the trip to Heritage Village because it would not fit under traffic lights. The house was bequeathed to the county after the last resident, Geraldine "Geri'' Turner, died last year. Turner's estate also provided $100,000 to cover the cost of relocating the house. It is the 29th historic structure in Heritage Village.
