Bringing Back the Bottoms

Bringing Back the Bottoms

2014 End of Year Giving Campaign

Over the past 30 years, Shreveport has lost the majority of the historic houses that were once abundant in Ledbetter Heights. Help us honor and preserve the ones we have left by supporting Norla in our 2014 End of Year Giving campaign. Will you help us bring back the Bottoms and move Norla one step closer in giving six historic shotgun houses a new use and a new life?

The City of Shreveport and Norla Preservation Project are finalizing the plans for the donation of the proposed land site where we will move the shotguns for our commercial development. We expect to have ownership of the land early 2015. We will use the money raised from “Bringing Back the Bottoms,” to begin both the survey and site work to prepare the lot for receiving the houses. Our goal is to move the houses in June of 2015. 

Contributions are represented on the map below and will be commemorated on an art print and postcard in January 2015. Thank you!
