John Glenn's home moved to museum location

Spaceman John Glenn returned to his boyhood home of New Concord, Ohio, last week to watch his old house move to Main Street. There the 2-story white frame building will be turned into a museum. The house traveled the half mile from Friendship Drive - named in 1962 after Glenn's capsule Friendship 7 orbited the Earth. There are plans to build a space exploration complex next door at the new location.
