COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The moving of Historic Westville Village from Lumpkin to south Columbus has been delayed.

A sewer line repair at the southern end of South Lumpkin Road is delaying the moving of the first building

The new location is off of South Lumpkin Road in Columbus near the National Infantry Museum.

Officials with Columbus Water Works tell Historic Westville that the earliest possible date the first building could be moved in on May 15.

The village was previously located in Lumpkin, Georgia as a living museum filled with 1800's artifacts and homes.

After low attendance, the museum decided to move to the spot set to open in 2018.
