New interest in saving historic Ouerbacker House

Just days from demolition, there is new interest in saving an historic West Louisville mansion.

The 19th Century Ouerbacker House has been deterioriating for years.  The city will soon be forced to demolish the building because an east wall could soon collapse.

In a last-ditch effort to save the mansion, the city is willing to sell the property for a dollar and provide a $50,000 grant to repair the damaged wall.

The offer has attracted five or six parties who are interested in taking on the project.

There has been interest in saving the building in the past.  The biggest problem: it will cost up to a million dollars to restore it to its former glory.
