Dear Friend of Preservation,
We appreciate your continued support of our ongoing efforts throughout the state. This year
the preservation community joined forces to educate our state leaders about the economic
benefits of historic preservation. Our organization along with state-wide partners was able to
ensure that the restoration tax credit for commercial structures was left in place for a number of
years.
The LTHP is coming off a very successful event in Lake Charles of the LA Annual Preservation
Conference with credit and appreciation to the Calcasieu Historical Preservation Society for
their generous sponsorship. There are numerous individuals and groups that pulled this great
meeting together, but I would be remiss if I didn’t specifically note the efforts for the Garden
Soiree hosted by Donna and Rick Richard as well as their efforts to make this entire conference
a massive success with Donna as chairwoman. Without faithful, dedicated, and visionary
volunteers like Donna and Rick, the LTHP would not be able to do the work it does across our
state. Thank you, Lake Charles for all that you are doing in preservation.
Following up on the success in Lake Charles, there are big plans for 2016 with our next Annual
Conference that will be held on May 12, 2016 in downtown Covington at the Southern Hotel.
This beautiful boutique hotel and event center was recognized at the conference as a Success
Story being restored by Lisa Condrey Ward and has received glowing reviews for hospitality
and place.
There will be a few other events for keeping an eye out in the fall starting with our Fall Ramble
in Shreveport slated for Sunday, November 1. Invites will go out in September and we hope
you will be able to attend.
On the political front, be sure to discuss with the candidates who are running for state-wide
election their position on historic preservation. Having partners who see preservation as a
great tool for community development is a must. On the political note we want to congratulate
our colleague at the LA Division of Historic Preservation, Phil Boggan, for his appointment by
Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne to Assistant Secretary, Office of Cultural Development.
We appreciate and need your support of LTHP. Feel free to join, donate, or find more
information by logging on to our web site www.lthp.org.
My best,

Louisiana Property Makes National Trust
“Most Endangered Historic Places” List
Listed as endangered in 2015, the Carrollton Courthouse
in New Orleans is under threat of demolition.
The Carrollton Courthouse served as the seat of
government for Jefferson Parish until the City of
Carrollton was annexed by New Orleans in 1874. It
is one of the most important public buildings from
Carrollton’s days as an independent city and is one of the
city’s most significant landmarks in New Orleans located
outside of the French Quarter.
In the early 1950s, the community and the nonprofit
group Louisiana Landmarks Society staved off a
demolition threat that led to the courthouse’s rebirth as
a school. From 1957 to 2013, it housed a series of public
schools, including Benjamin Franklin High School, the
first New Orleans public high school to integrate in 1963.
Now, this stately Greek Revival building, designed by
one of New Orleans’ most noteworthy architects, Henry
Howard, is threatened with an uncertain future as the
Orleans Parish School Board prepares to sell it with no
preservation safeguards in place.
Join the National Trust and Louisiana Landmarks
Society in speaking up for the Carrollton Courthouse’s
priceless heritage. Sign our petition! More information

2014 Most Endangered Properties
Each year from 1999 through 2014, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation has solicited nominations for a Most
Endangered listing with Preservation Success Stories beginning in 2011. For 1999 through 2014, there have been 115 historic
properties listed as Most Endangered throughout Louisiana including a few historic properties that have been repeating
multiple years. For 2011 through 2014, there have been 67 historic properties listed as Preservation Success Stories. Properties
overtime have included buildings, bridges, sites (like cemeteries), street scrapes, and even historic districts. Beginning 2013,
Louisiana Trust began to capture the use of federal and Louisiana historic tax credits used for preservation projects. In
2013 only three projects nominated for Preservation Success Stories reflect use of these tax credits. For the 2014 nomination
cycle, 11 of the 17 nominations – or 65 percent – used tax credits. Beginning in 2011-2012, Louisiana Trust expanded the
solicitation for nominations from the Louisiana Trust’s board and the general public to include nominations from community
and parish elected appointed officials; Main Street Directors, historic property owners, architects, developers, and historic
preservation organization throughout Louisiana.

The St. James Historical Society with assistance from St. James Parish has successfully moved two buildings
from their location on the River Road to their new home at the St. James Welcome Center on Airline Highway.
The old pharmacy required the removal of
part of the roof in order clear overhead wires.
When the new piers were completed, the rafters were
rebuilt and a new corrugated roof was added.
Once the pharmacy is weather-proofed, work can
begin on the interior.
A new foundation was laid to provide a stable
base and the house was cribbed while new piers
were constructed.
The Paulina Post office was also relocated and it too,
had a new foundation and piers.
Update: St. James Historical Society
There is still a great deal of work to be done on the interiors of the buildings and the collection will need to
be edited and reinstalled. The St. James Society will need to secure additional funding to move forward with
these next phases. St. James Society President, Joe Samrow, is hopeful that the relocation of the buildings will
stimulate donations.

240th Year Commemoration 1775-2015
William Bartram Trail Dedication
Baton Rouge - On September 8-13, 2015 the Friends of LSU Hilltop Arboretum with the Bartram Trail Conference will commemorate the
240th anniversary of naturalist William Bartram’s visit to Louisiana with the dedication of five historical markers and a re-dedication of one
originally placed in 1976. The culmination of this community-wide event will be a lecture by British author Andrea Wulf on her award-winning
book “Founding Gardeners: The Revolutionary Generation, Nature and the Shaping of the American Nation” on Sunday, September 13,
2015 at 5:30 p.m. at the EBRP Main Library on Goodwood Blvd. “Founding Gardeners” was on the New York Times Best Seller List and praised as
‘illuminating and engrossing.’
LSU Hilltop Arboretum spearheaded the event in cooperation with the Bartram Trail Conference. Hilltop Director Peggy Coates, Michele Deshotels,
Pam Sulzer, and Southern Garden History Society board member Randy Harelson comprise the committee. Event partners include the EBRP
Public Library, Burden Horticulture Society, Beauregard Town Civic Association, Downtown Development District, Louisiana Trust for Historic
Preservation, Foundation for Historical Louisiana, Pointe Coupee Historical Society, Zachary Historical Archives, Plains Presbyterian Church and St.
Francis Chapel.
Dedication Events - William Bartram was America’s first native-born naturalist artist and the first author in the modern genre of writers who
portrayed nature through personal experience and scientific observation. Each marker includes a quote from Bartram’s book “Travels” that describes
the natural, eighteenth century environment he found in Louisiana (See Marker Quotes). Dedication ceremonies will be unique to each site and held
in the sequence in which Bartram traveled through the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

After three years of hard work, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) is almost ready to establish a
statewide Revolving Fund. Startup finances are in place, and the search for a Revolving Fund Director has begun.
The purpose of a revolving fund is to save as many endangered historic buildings as possible. Briefly, it does this by
acquiring commercial structures or houses through option, donation or purchase at the lowest possible price. The
fund then searches for new owners while stabilizing the buildings to prevent further damage. The fund can also flip
structures in their “as is” condition. In either case, the fund adds protective covenants to the deeds before relinquishing
ownership. The new owners then rehabilitate the buildings to meet their business or residential needs. The goal is
to sell the properties for more money than the cost of acquisition and stabilization, thus making a small profit and
growing the fund. At first, all profits should be poured back into acquisition and stabilization so that the revolving
fund can continue to grow. Later, when the project reaches the right level of success, a percentage of the fund’s profits
can be used to provide a sustainable income for the fund’s sponsoring organization.
The Louisiana Trust began exploring the creation of a Revolving Fund after National Trust advisor and board
member Jean Sayres of Shreveport raised the possibility in 2012. To gather information, the board reached out to
J. Myrick Howard, president of Preservation North Carolina, who agreed to serve as the 2013 annual conference’s
keynote speaker. Preservation North Carolina is one of the most successful revolving funds in the nation. Continued
discussions with Howard and the Louisiana State Historic Preservation Office cemented the board’s decision to move
forward with fund raising and the search for a knowledgeable person to lead the project.
A revolving fund director must be a dynamic and assertive individual willing to wear many hats. He or she must
have a comprehensive knowledge of real estate; fund raising and budgeting, and public speaking. Equally important,
the director must have experience in specification preparation, construction techniques, the Secretary of the Interior’s
Standards for Rehabilitation, and project management. Familiarity with the region’s architectural and historical
patrimony is also desired. Additionally, the fund director must have the confidence and presence to convince property
donors and buyers, the state’s financial communities, and potential professional and lay volunteers of the fund’s worth.
A committee composed of four board members is leading the director search. Its members include Sonya LaComb
Boudreaux of Lafayette, Patricia Duncan and Darryl Gissel of Baton Rouge, and Richard Gibbs of New Roads. Duncan
serves as chairperson of the committee.

Scriber Director, Louisiana Main Street Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation DCRT Office of Cultural Development James Logan National Trust Advisor Jean Sayres National Trust Advisor Winnie Byrd Advisor Emeritus Sue Turner Advisor Emeritus Board of Directors Dear Friend of Preservation, We appreciate your continued support of our ongoing efforts throughout the state. This year the preservation community joined forces to educate our state leaders about the economic benefits of historic preservation. Our organization along with state-wide partners was able to ensure that the restoration tax credit for commercial structures was left in place for a number of years. The LTHP is coming off a very successful event in Lake Charles of the LA Annual Preservation Conference with credit and appreciation to the Calcasieu Historical Preservation Society for their generous sponsorship. There are numerous individuals and groups that pulled this great meeting together, but I would be remiss if I didn’t specifically note the efforts for the Garden Soiree hosted by Donna and Rick Richard as well as their efforts to make this entire conference a massive success with Donna as chairwoman. Without faithful, dedicated, and visionary volunteers like Donna and Rick, the LTHP would not be able to do the work it does across our state. Thank you, Lake Charles for all that you are doing in preservation. Following up on the success in Lake Charles, there are big plans for 2016 with our next Annual Conference that will be held on May 12, 2016 in downtown Covington at the Southern Hotel. This beautiful boutique hotel and event center was recognized at the conference as a Success Story being restored by Lisa Condrey Ward and has received glowing reviews for hospitality and place. There will be a few other events for keeping an eye out in the fall starting with our Fall Ramble in Shreveport slated for Sunday, November 1. Invites will go out in September and we hope you will be able to attend. On the political front, be sure to discuss with the candidates who are running for state-wide election their position on historic preservation. Having partners who see preservation as a great tool for community development is a must. On the political note we want to congratulate our colleague at the LA Division of Historic Preservation, Phil Boggan, for his appointment by Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne to Assistant Secretary, Office of Cultural Development. We appreciate and need your support of LTHP. Feel free to join, donate, or find more information by logging on to our web site www.lthp.org. My best, Michael Echols, President, LTHP My best, h l E h l

Louisiana Property Makes National Trust “Most Endangered Historic Places” List Listed as endangered in 2015, the Carrollton Courthouse in New Orleans is under threat of demolition. The Carrollton Courthouse served as the seat of government for Jefferson Parish until the City of Carrollton was annexed by New Orleans in 1874. It is one of the most important public buildings from Carrollton’s days as an independent city and is one of the city’s most significant landmarks in New Orleans located outside of the French Quarter. In the early 1950s, the community and the nonprofit group Louisiana Landmarks Society staved off a demolition threat that led to the courthouse’s rebirth as a school. From 1957 to 2013, it housed a series of public schools, including Benjamin Franklin High School, the first New Orleans public high school to integrate in 1963. Now, this stately Greek Revival building, designed by one of New Orleans’ most noteworthy architects, Henry Howard, is threatened with an uncertain future as the Orleans Parish School Board prepares to sell it with no preservation safeguards in place.

  • 4. 4 2014 Most Endangered Properties Each year from 1999 through 2014, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation has solicited nominations for a Most Endangered listing with Preservation Success Stories beginning in 2011. For 1999 through 2014, there have been 115 historic properties listed as Most Endangered throughout Louisiana including a few historic properties that have been repeating multiple years. For 2011 through 2014, there have been 67 historic properties listed as Preservation Success Stories. Properties overtime have included buildings, bridges, sites (like cemeteries), street scrapes, and even historic districts. Beginning 2013, Louisiana Trust began to capture the use of federal and Louisiana historic tax credits used for preservation projects. In 2013 only three projects nominated for Preservation Success Stories reflect use of these tax credits. For the 2014 nomination cycle, 11 of the 17 nominations – or 65 percent – used tax credits. Beginning in 2011-2012, Louisiana Trust expanded the solicitation for nominations from the Louisiana Trust’s board and the general public to include nominations from community and parish elected appointed officials; Main Street Directors, historic property owners, architects, developers, and historic preservation organization throughout Louisiana. by W.

The old pharmacy required the removal of part of the roof in order clear overhead wires. When the new piers were completed, the rafters were rebuilt and a new corrugated roof was added. Once the pharmacy is weather-proofed, work can begin on the interior. A new foundation was laid to provide a stable base and the house was cribbed while new piers were constructed. The Paulina Post office was also relocated and it too, had a new foundation and piers. Update: St. James Historical Society There is still a great deal of work to be done on the interiors of the buildings and the collection will need to be edited and reinstalled. The St. James Society will need to secure additional funding to move forward with these next phases. St. James Society President, Joe Samrow, is hopeful that the relocation of the buildings will stimulate donations.

Startup finances are in place, and the search for a Revolving Fund Director has begun. The purpose of a revolving fund is to save as many endangered historic buildings as possible. Briefly, it does this by acquiring commercial structures or houses through option, donation or purchase at the lowest possible price. The fund then searches for new owners while stabilizing the buildings to prevent further damage. The fund can also flip structures in their “as is” condition. In either case, the fund adds protective covenants to the deeds before relinquishing ownership. The new owners then rehabilitate the buildings to meet their business or residential needs. The goal is to sell the properties for more money than the cost of acquisition and stabilization, thus making a small profit and growing the fund. At first, all profits should be poured back into acquisition and stabilization so that the revolving fund can continue to grow. Later, when the project reaches the right level of success, a percentage of the fund’s profits can be used to provide a sustainable income for the fund’s sponsoring organization. The Louisiana Trust began exploring the creation of a Revolving Fund after National Trust advisor and board member Jean Sayres of Shreveport raised the possibility in 2012. To gather information, the board reached out to J. Myrick Howard, president of Preservation North Carolina, who agreed to serve as the 2013 annual conference’s keynote speaker. Preservation North Carolina is one of the most successful revolving funds in the nation. Continued discussions with Howard and the Louisiana State Historic Preservation Office cemented the board’s decision to move forward with fund raising and the search for a knowledgeable person to lead the project. A revolving fund director must be a dynamic and assertive individual willing to wear many hats. He or she must have a comprehensive knowledge of real estate; fund raising and budgeting, and public speaking. Equally important, the director must have experience in specification preparation, construction techniques, the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, and project management. Familiarity with the region’s architectural and historical patrimony is also desired. Additionally, the fund director must have the confidence and presence to convince property donors and buyers, the state’s financial communities, and potential professional and lay volunteers of the fund’s worth. A committee composed of four board members is leading the director search. Its members include Sonya LaComb Boudreaux of Lafayette, Patricia Duncan and Darryl Gissel of Baton Rouge, and Richard Gibbs of New Roads. Duncan serves as chairperson of the committee.
