    Great news for this rare survivor of the 1892 3rd Ward Fire! The finished product will be a testament to the value of saving contributing structures in historic neighborhoods even when neglect has them looking rough. The reward will be an irreplaceable, unique, attractive, vibrant structure that will be part of the charm that drives the economy of this neighborhood.

  2. Jo Davis says:

    I am relieved to know the building will stand. Thanks to the developer and the BID 2 Architectural Committee for not demolishing.
    I look forward to a “food/drink” oasis in the neighborhood.

    Thank you to the Architectural Review Board for making this an Historic Designation. This is a beautiful building which deserves to be saved. Too often these vacant historic buildings are torn down and replaced with nondescript cheap looking boxes. This will be an asset to the Third Ward.

    Great that the building will be saved and the historic tavern revived! Thanks, Michael Horne!
