The historic Lange House 1840’s was seriously damaged by Hurricane Katrina(2005) and in 2009 the city paid for the relocation of the home. The scope of work included de-construction of the roof and front porch as well as the non-historic rear addition. The main part of the building was relocated to higher ground a few blocks away and placed on a new flood compliant foundation. The roof and front porch were re-attached, a new slate roof installed and the building painted. The building is the community historic museum and hosts hundreds of school children annually.
