 What haunts owners of old homes?

Plattsmouth Conservancy to again offer free seminars on restoration of historic homes

They may not manifest right away and the problems that arise vary from hot water or HVAC

systems to siding, windows or a horde of issues that threaten all old home owners, leading

them to wonder, “What have I gotten myself into?”

 In Plattsmouth, 50 percent or more of the homes are at least 50 years old, prompting

Plattsmouth Conservancy to put together a series of seminars designed to help with the

choosing, restoring and maintaining an older home, whether the style is mid-century,

Craftsman, bungalow or Victorian.

There will be a series of 4 seminars. The dates are May 6 and June 10 at the

Conservancy office, located at 437-1 Main Street. The time is 6:30-8:30 PM. There will be a

drawing for a door prize at each seminar.

The first in the series will be an overview of things to look for and what to do about them. The

next three seminars will delve into specifics associated with the restoration and maintenance of

the older home. At the end of each presentation, there will be a question and answer period.

Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

 2014-03-19 CONSTRUCTION

Starting the week of March 31, if you plan to drive on Highway 75 between Union and Nebraska City, you will probably need to add at least a half hour to your trip.  

A six-mile stretch of highway south of the Union corner will be shut down until September while crews rebuild the road.   

 Either plan to detour west on Hwy 34 to Hwy 50, then south to Hwy 2, or go across the Plattsmouth toll bridge to I-29 and down the interstate.  

Plan accordingly, so you don't have to hurry!
