A plan that calls for the relocation of two buildings on Irvine's historic Buffalo Ranch to the fairgrounds in Costa Mesa will come before the Orange County Fair Board for a vote Thursday. The plan was released Monday after weeks of negotiations between fair officials and the Irvine Co., which owns the Buffalo Ranch. Under the proposal, the Irvine Co. would pay to move and rehabilitate two of the most picturesque ranch buildings, including the famous silo structure.

After 11 days, the now infamous Hollywood Freeway house was finally rolling again late Tuesday night. The house was being hauled north on the freeway followed by a parade of cars after beginning its journey around 10:30 p.m. It had languished on the freeway shoulder since the owner, Patrick Richardson, tried moving it from Santa Monica to the Santa Clarita Valley himself Sept. 15. He had hoped to save money.

Star of the Sea Church was moved as a lava flow burned through the heart of this picturesque beach town Friday, more than seven years after Kilauea Volcano began its latest eruption. The flow picked up speed and advanced more than 200 yards overnight, but so far it has bypassed the Kalapana Store and Drive-Inn and the Kalapana Mauna Kea Congregational Church. The lava was moving behind both structures, and was beginning to rise along the Congregational church's wall that abutted a meeting hall.

On the whole, the guys truckin W. C. Fields' former home through the streets of Toluca Lake early Wednesday probably wished they were in Philadelphia. So did the residents along Clybourn Avenue, many of whom were rousted from bed at unholy hours by the growl of chain saws denuding the stately magnolia trees that line their cozy neighborhood.

A historic cottage was saved from demolition this week when a local couple agreed to buy it and move it to an adjacent empty lot. The 110-year-old Hankey/Rowse house, a crumbling, blue-gray Victorian just off Ortega Highway that is on the list of the city's historic landmarks, will be restored. The house, formerly the center of one of the area's earliest citrus farms, at one time was the home of a French priest who served at Mission San Juan Capistrano.

Pounding a ceremonial final nail, Diane Disney Miller dedicated a red barn Monday that was once the personal workshop of her father, Walt Disney, and is now on display in Griffith Park. The 832-square-foot structure was recently dismantled and removed from Disney's former home on Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills and reassembled at the large-scale model railroad facility operated next to Travel Town by Los Angeles Live Steamers.

Here's a riddle for the aspiring home buyer. How can a 2,200-square-foot, single-story ranch home be both priced to move and moved for a price? Simple. List the property for a dollar. Then have the buyer pay as much as $30,000 to get the structure off your hands. This creative sales gimmick is being used by one Burbank developer to make way for two homes it hopes to build on a lot at 1036 N. Avon St. The Burnett Group Inc.

The Cape Hatteras lighthouse beacon was lighted, completing a controversial $9.8-million relocation that saved the nation's tallest brick lighthouse from being threatened by the sea that beats against the North Carolina coast. People along Outer Banks beaches cheered as the beacon atop the 198-foot tower resumed rotating after being out for nearly a year during the move inland. County officials and a local businessman at one time filed suit to block the U.S.

The City Council has given the city's Historical Society until Monday to draw up a proposal to move an historic Arts and Crafts home to Heritage Court in Dominguez Park. The council was scheduled to make a decision this week on whether the 1921 home could be moved to Heritage Court, where two other historic residences have been restored and are on display. City officials postponed the decision, saying they needed more information. They plan to reconsider the issue April 21.

The classrooms haven't been built yet. But home work is already being parceled out at Central High School No. 2 in the West Adams district. That's where construction planners for the proposed $130-million campus are being taught that it's not easy to preserve Los Angeles' past when you're building for its future. Workers have demolished most of a century-old neighborhood of houses and businesses to make room for the 15-acre high school at Vermont Avenue and Washington Boulevard.

The historic Edwards House in Orange, a 1921 Craftsman residence that had turned into a white elephant, has a new owner. Last year, the city couldn't get even $1 for the house when it was put on the auction block. The sale was necessary because the house stood in the way of a library expansion. But there were no bidders, in part because of the requirement that it be moved at the new owner's expense to another lot in the Old Towne Historic District.

A day laborer hired by a house-moving company was fatally injured Thursday morning when the house made contact with trees along Grand Avenue in Walnut, authorities said. Shortly before 6 a.m., workers from H and H Movers tried to realign the house away from trees along a hillside, said investigators with the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health. The house, however, shifted on its supports and a beam struck the worker in the midsection, said Cal-OSHA spokesman Dean Fryer.

Clearing the way for the last big ranch in the San Gabriel Valley to become a 400-acre industrial park, Industry has approved plans to move a vacant, historic mansion built by a local pioneer from the spread. For nearly a century, the imposing and somewhat rundown Craftsman home--built by former Sheriff Alvan Currier--has sat untouched by rampant development, which has converted Industry from scrawny farmland to a paradise of business.

The long-awaited expansion of the San Fernando Valley Japanese American Community Center neared completion Tuesday when half of a building was moved from Burbank to the center in Pacoima. "I'm really glad we're finally at this point," said Michael Motoyasu, a board member of the center and project chairman. "It's been a long, long road." It took nearly nearly three years of planning and cutting through bureaucratic red tape to prepare for this week's move, Motoyasu said.
