Greek Revival Camelback

This home, one of my favorite houses in the footprint, is included in a new booklet printed by the Foundation for Historical Louisiana showing and describing over 100 historic homes in the VA footprint.

I was very happy to work with a number of energetic volunteers in creating the publication - it was quite an undertaking, and I spent far more of my spring break than anticipated on the project. 

It has since helped to spur a concerted effort to move as many homes from the site as possible.  Whether that happens remains to be seen - a number of major non-profits and local stakeholders are now involved in the discussions.  I'm hopeful that something positive will result.  And even if not, at least we tried.
