Historic hotel moved through streets of West Palm Beach

A historic hotel and boarding house had to be parked overnight on a West Palm Beach street during a move because of delays with its relocation.

Traffic had to be blocked off overnight Sunday and some light posts were temporarily removed to accommodate the relocation of the almost-century-old The Edgewater.

The 4,900-square-foot hotel was moved about 1.5 miles to a historic district of West Palm Beach after a new owner of the property decided its former location would be used for parking.

The Edgewater will be used as a bed-and-breakfast inn in its new location.
