Preservation Resource Center members and nonmembers are invited to visit a 19th-century home that survived a former owner’s demolition request and is now getting a second chance at life.

The home is now relocated to its current Tchoupitoulas Street location and is being being rehabilitated by Historic Home Recyclers, LLC. Property owner Troy Keller and renovator Robert Brent moved the house to its current location in May 2013, instead of tearing it down to make way for a filming lot.

On Thursday, June 26, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Preservation Resource Center members can visit the home on 3527 Tchoupitoulas St. (between Aline and Foucher) for free, and nonmembers can do so for $10.

Renovation stories from the homeowner and experience from a different historic neighborhood is offered each month at Preservation Resource Center’s Renovators’ Happy Hour.

    wait a minute – it was going to be a “filming” lot – that does not make sense – there are plenty of vacant lots – what’s a goin’ on here, cher.
