circa 1923 Wrigleyville caretakers house
circa 1923 Wrigleyville caretakers house relocation

Built in 1923 for baseball field caretaker and groundskeeper, Bobby Dorr, this historic brick abode (pictured above) was spared the wrecking ball, hoisted up on an industrial strength trailer, and is currently awaiting relocation as renovations continue within the  'Friendly Confines' of Wrigley Field in Chicago's Wrigleyville neighborhood. On a side note: original cost of construction 92 years ago? $6,000.
