1966-68 North Prieur Street

I spoke to the owner next door and he was aware that this was supposed to be torn down. However, I described some of the grant opportunities for historic properties, gave him the SH web site address, and he promised to check it out, although I’m not sure if he was interested for his own property or this one. He says this house has been vacant for a couple of years, and the usual Creole adornments that are missing on the outside have been gone for many years. He says that it’s in bad shape inside, but I wasn’t able to see much through the windows.
