A 121-year-old remnant of the old Prairie Avenue neighborhood--the place where the city's 19th century upper crust once lived--could be headed toward landmark status this week.If you've ever been down there, the house sticks out like a sore thumb. It's a beautiful building and we would really like to see the landmark status go through.
Staff from the Historic Preservation Division of the city's department of Housing and Economic Development will ask the landmarks commission to recommend preliminary landmark status to the Harriet F. Rees House, 2110 S. Prairie. The commission meets Thursday afternoon at City Hall.
What are your thoughts on this story? We wish the other mansions were still around...
