Progress Fighting to Save 43 MacDougal Street

43 MacDougal StreetThis landmarked 1846 rowhouse has set empty and deteriorating for over a decade.  GVSHP has been working with neighbors to get the house restored - to eliminate the blight to the neighborhood, to prevent damage to adjoining properties, and to have this wonderful historic house returned to its rightful condition. 

After many years, our efforts seem to finally be bearing some fruit.  In recent weeks, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has thoroughly inspected the building, and several concrete steps have been taken to stabilize the structure, including installing new supports and shoring in the interior.  Loads of debris, which were potentially harmful to the one-hundred sixty-seven year old  house, have been removed from the structure.  

While we are encouraged by this progress, the house still has a long way to go before it is fully repaired. GVSHP will continue to work with neighbors to closely monitor the situation and push the owner and the City to ensure that the building is restored to an appropriate condition. Read more here.
