Woodbourne House made Preservation Louisville's list of Top 10 Preservation Successes of 2014!
Broadway Christian Church, later Douglass Boulevard Christian Church, acquired a large part of the original tract in 1936 and built their current place of worship at 2005 Douglass Boulevard in 1940. In 1949, the church rededicated the historic home as Briney Hall. It was in continuous use until 2012. Louisville Nonprofit Developer New Directions Housing Corporation oversaw the restoration of the Greek Revival landmark home and the construction of an annex that together provides 11 units for older persons. New Directions, a Metro Way and NeighborWorks America member agency, will manage the site.
Kudos to all the awesome folks from DBCC and all others involved who had the patience and perseverance to see this project through. If you haven't seen Woodbourne House since the makeover, I can assure you she has never looked better than she does today.
