Evansville city officials are hoping the James Bethel Gresham Memorial Home will soon house military veterans in need.

The city built the home in 1917 for the mother of the first soldier killed in World War One.  They recently completed 12-thousand dollars in roof repairs, and are now seeking a new owner.

Parks officials say the house could be given to a nonprofit group and be open as transitional housing for vets by next year.
