Preserving history comes in many forms. To ensure the survival of Casa Feliz, a historic home museum in Winter Park, FL, the community stepped up and took action. The community's perseverance and dedication allowed the home, which was designed and built by celebrated central Florida architect, James Gamble Rogers II, to live its second life as a museum and rental facility for the community to enjoy for years to come. Moving the house was a feat of modern engineering. World Moving and Restoration, a company that specializes in relocating historic buildings, separated the 750-ton house from its foundation, inserted steel beams and then hydraulically lifted the beams, and thus the house, in one piece. The city created a volunteer Winter Park Registry of Historic Homes. Residents can list their homes on the registry to ensure that no one can knock down or significantly alter the property without approval from the city's historic preservation board. Further, Casa Feliz was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places on Dec 31, 2008.
