Riverside home remains in disrepair


Evansville, Ind. (WEHT) — A historic downtown Evansville home remains in disrepair, after it was hit twice by vehicles who ran off the road. Today, the homeowner and his architect presented a plan to the historic preservation committee to repair the home. 

Board members said the design for the doors, window and porch reconstruction did not bear enough resemblance to the home before the accident. One of the materials the homeowner wanted to use was limestone, which the commission said would be an unnecessary expense.

The commission said if the homeowner and architect reproduce the exact model of the home before the crash then they do not need re-approval from the commission. However, if the homeowner wants to make design changes, then the plan and a complete material list needs to be presented and approved in another meeting.
