The relocation of the Kent Wells Sherman House from its temporary location on College Street to a lot on North Water Street has been delayed until further notice.
Kent Service Director Eugene Roberts said an issue with utilities at the 247 N. Water St. address caused of the holdup.
The house was scheduled to be moved beginning at 7 a.m. today. Kent State University is paying for the move.
Roberts said utility lines in the air need to be dropped temporarily so the house can be moved over them and onto its new lot. The lines will then need to be raised back up.
However, there is a "scheduling conflict" with that work, Roberts said. A new move date and time has not been set. He said the soonest the move could happen would be the second weekend in September.
The Kent Wells Sherman House, which has been the subject of an eight-month legal battle, has been sitting on stilts for more than a year on College Avenue.
