     Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry was on hand to welcome the new owners of this stately Greek Revival home built in 1930 just north of Forest Park Boulevard.  Renovation work was extensive and included not only the restoration of most historic componts, but also full lead paint abatement.  36 original windows were repaired and reglazed, original hardwood floors were refinished, and original plaster walls were repaired.  The new kitchen and renovated bathrooms feature custom designed and built cabinetry, new floors, and new appliances, fixtures and faucets, as well as restored original tile work.  The roof and gutters were replaced and the brick facade, wood trim, coloumns and chimney were all restored to make certain this beautiful home lasts another 100 years.
