Thomasville-- The McCray House, on West Monroe in downtown Thomasville was built around 1895.  It's been vacant for 10 years.

The county will soon build a new justice center on the block and were going to tear it down. Fortunately, someone offered to move it.   Brent Runyon, executive director for Thomasville Landmarks, Inc., a preservation group, says, "We have had a lot of losses of historic homes in Thomasville the last few years. But this shows if someone puts their mind to it and has the opportunity that we can save Thomasville's history. "

Runyon says the house's new owner wants to be anonymous for now, but plans to move the house to their property and restore it.
