Keirle house - SAVED
As a result of a collaborative and proactive preservation effort, the Kerile House was saved in the Spring of 2012. Landmarks, Inc. & Restore Omaha worked directly with the former property Owner and the Omaha Landmarks Heritage Commission Board to defeat a request to de-list this property which would have permitted its demolishion. The home was instead listed on the open market and sold in several months to a Buyer willing to keep the house a part of the Florance historic Community. Thanks to all who passionatley worked hard to keep this important Landmark!
Here is more information about the case.....
This article in the Omaha World Herald will hopefully draw more people to the Landmarks Commission meeting at 1:30 on Wednesday - 1819 Farnam street, room 1210. Landmarks, Inc. has extended an offer to the Florence Historical Foundation to partner in saving this great piece of Florence history. If they accept, we will host a tour of the house and all proceeds will be earmarked towards necessary repairs. We will continue to offer our assistance to the Foundation untill they accept.

I am very pleased to see us move out of what has been a year of little progress, and invite you to reengage with what is now a much stronger, vibrant group of people passionate about our built history. Landmarks is now meeting on a regular basis with Restore Omaha and representing them as a Fiscal Sponsor. It is the first step of what I hope will become a long lasting partnership! The blending of our two groups will result in positive collaboration that better fulfills the original mission of Landmarks and also retains the unique quality of Restore Omaha.
