A nearly 160-year-old home being moved across a Texas city became briefly hung up on a street light, United Press International reported.

The “Collinwood home” was built in 1861. It was bought in May by the Haggard family, descendants of the original residents. On Wednesday, it was transported to its new location in Plano, Texas, at the Haggard farm.

"It's emotional to see something like this on the road being moved. It's got to be emotional for anybody whether you're family or not," family member Rutledge Haggard told WFAA-TV.

The only hiccup on the journey to the building’s new home was when it hit the street light, but it arrived unscathed.
