A reader writes in looking for pointers on what kind of financing and financial help might be available for renovating houses in the area:
What is the best way to get an historical grant for a recently purchased property in Church Hill? It is a 110-year-old house that has been recently purchased for rebuilding, and saved from demolition. A grant/fund would help me to keep the original design rather than going for some cheaper remedies to code violations (for the roof, exterior design, and the foundation, and remodeling a section rather than just losing a room of the house. Has anyone done this, or is this a legend?
