CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — A Cumberland County home built in 1743 is getting an upgrade and a new location.

Construction started at the Junkin House, one of the oldest structures in Silver Spring Township, for it to be moved approximately 100 feet. The building’s new location will make it more stable and add more parking for visitors.
