Main Street house was listed by National Historic Register

By Brent Schanding

Preservationists say not enough was done to thwart demolition of a 116-year-old historic home on Main Street. The two-story brick house at 205 N. Main St. was razed Aug. 26. The site will indefinitely serve as a grassy lot for neighboring Owenton First Baptist Church, which acquired the house and a quarter-acre lot in a $220,000, tax-free deal reached four years ago with former owner A.T. Morgan, according to county property records.
