Description: Photograph of a two-story wooden structure and accompanying outbuildings in Danevang, Texas, belonging to Helvig Jensen Berndt. The main home has a shingled intersecting gable roof and an overhang supported by four columns. There also appears to be a second overhang in the back patio along with several strewn objects on the grass. Accompanying information states that across a time-span of 30 days, Helvig moved the home two and a half miles into a dug hole by wrapping a rope around a post and dragging the home with the aid of a mule. In the early 1970's, it was torn down and Grandson Elvin Berndt built his own home in 1973 on the original spot.
