September 18, 1997


Plans to alter remains of Lawrence's past will be on the minds of members of the Historic Resources Commission, who are scheduled to meet tonight at city hall, Sixth and Massachusetts.

Among the items scheduled for discussions during the 7 p.m. meeting:

  • Plans to raze a garage behind 939 Mass., located within the environs of the Oread Neighborhood Historic District and two local landmarks: the Duncan-Tucker House, 933 Tenn., and Benedict House, 925 Tenn.
  • Plans to repair a roof, remove asbestos siding and build a new front porch at 1038 Tenn., as proposed by owner Gene Moesser. The property is located within the environs of the Oread district and two local landmarks: the Blood Residence, 1015 Tenn., and the Morse House, 1041 Tenn.
  • A process for conducting environs reviews for the Social Service League of Lawrence, 905-907 R.I.

Several other issues also are scheduled for discussions, including a water line replacement project along the east side of Louisiana Street, from Fifth to Eighth streets. The project was approved administratively Aug. 21. The new lines, which are bored underneath existing brick streets, run in front of the Dillard House, 520 La., which is listed on the local historic register.
