About That Last House

A reliable source says that beginning March 15, that house was slowly disassembled by it's owner rafter by rafter. The Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans is trying to find a way to save it before it collapses. This isn't the first time a house has been exposed to the elements for a natural, therefore legal demolition; the house mentioned below also met it's fate due to natural demolition. People cannot simply demolish historic properties, these buildings can be rehabilitated and brought back an original beauty that contributes to the architectural character of this city.

Another agency that is trying to save houses in Central City (which they are trying to rename Lower St. Charles Corridor) is Felicity Street Redevelopment Center. We bought our house from them.
