The historic Cadieux House will be on the move this spring, and will be spared the wrecking ball.

The City of Grosse Pointe City Council approve a rezoning request to move the 1850s-era farmhouse from its current location at Notre Dame and Jefferson, to a vacant lot at 533 St. Clair.

Dr. Leslie Ann Kaye bought the lot for the historic structure, and will use it as a home once it is moved this spring by Beaumont Hospital.

"This was the dream we had from the beginning," said Susan Hartz, a member of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society, at the meeting. "I think it is marvelous solution."

The farmhouse is proposed to be moved in two sections and will require the closure of Jefferson and St. Clair. According to city officials, it would be done on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and between the hours of 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The farmhouse is among the homes which have been purchased on the south side of Notre Dame by Beaumont Hospital, which is considering expanding parking. Currently, employees have to park in offsite lots as far away as the Village. 

The Cadieux house, which was originally located in Grosse Pointe Park, had been proposed to be moved back to the community at Jefferson, at Harvard.

In September the Grosse Pointe Park City Council voted to to refer the potential move of the historic home to the city's real estate committee following concerns about zoning and location.

"So often we are destroying our past," said City of Grosse Pointe councilman John Stempfle. "Now we are saving it."
