The David Arquette Family have purchased a historic home in Windsor Square according to Variety. Listed as #756 on the list of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments, the home was built for Henry W. O’Melveny on Wilshire Boulevard in 1908. It was moved to Windsor Square in 1930.

According to Variety:

Designed by renown architects at Hunt, Eager & Burns, the house was built in 1908 for a prominent attorney on Wilshire Boulevard in an area that was once part of the upscale Wilshire Boulevard Heights residential tract and is now pretty much the heart of Koreatown. In 1930, due to encroaching commercialization that impinged on their sense of residential gentility, the O’Melveny’s had the Arts and Crafts meets Tudor style manse picked up and moved two miles west — pulled by horses, actually — to its current location in the leafy, Hancock Park-adjacent neighborhood of Windsor Square.

The home was moved by Kress, a house moving company that built a reputation in the ’20s and ’30s for being able to move large buildings using innovative techniques. During that period, it was cheaper to move these homes than to build new ones. Plus, there weren’t as many obstacles like power lines.
