History's Wide Load

Abstract:
Midway Plantation in Knightdale was built on a 1739 land grant from Lord Granville and has remained in the family since then. The house was film critic Godfrey Cheshire's mother's home and is now in possession of his first cousin. With Knightdale growing and a highway encroaching on the house, the family decided the only way to save it was to move it. Cheshire made a movie of the move titled Moving Midway. Simpson discusses the film.
