The city symbol is the Transfer House, an early 20th century Victorian structure originally located in the center of town where the city's mass transit lines met. The Transfer House was moved in 1963 to save it from destruction as roads were being built for the increasing automobile traffic. There is currently an effort, led by mayor Paul Osborne, to return the Transfer House to its original location.
