Adventures in Preservation is supporting Norla Preservation Project in their quest to save six shotgun houses in Shreveport, Louisiana. Originally slated for demolition, Norla has successfully argued for their relocation to vacant city land. The houses, which retain their original exterior architectural detailing, will then be restored and serve as the basis for redevelopment of the Ledbetter Heights neighborhood in Shreveport. The buildings will house small businesses such as galleries, shops and cafes.
AiP is coordinating hands-on preservation sessions at the shotgun houses. These sessions are intensive work weeks involving community volunteers and AiP jammers and will be held beginning in 2015. Details on how you can join this community revitalization effort will be available soon. Join our mailing list to be among the first to find out!
Family, school, social and corporate groups are welcome — and encouraged — to pitch in for preservation.
We are actively seeking project sponsors and donors as well as jammers! Please contact Judith Broeker if you can contribute goods, services or financial support for this exciting project.
