Chez Fab Location Featured on WAFBbeing included on this years LTHP endangered site list
Every year, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) puts out a list to bring awareness to dilapidated sites that are at risk of being lost. This year, there are 11 sites across the state that could be rehabilitated based on their history and condition.
“Historic buildings and sites are the fingerprints of our communities and it takes creative measures to preserve and protect them for future generations,” said Brian Davis, executive director of the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation. “Strategic partnerships, tax credits and programs like LTHP’s revolving fund can save buildings many people may consider too far gone.”
Chez Fab is excited for its most ambitius project yet. We are revitalizing a beautiful historical two story church built in 1930. It is located in the heart of Baton Rouge at 800 N. 19th St. The church has served as a touchstone of Baton Rouge's African American community. Chez Fab hopes to honor this legacy by uniting Baton Rouge and beyond through Arts, Entertainment, Spirituality, and Hospitality. This site will will host performances, movie screenings, classes, workshops,film shoots, meetings, as well as healing arts.
1439 Myrtle Walk in South Baton Rouge, a former roofing supply company will serve as art studios and performance space.
A big thank you to everyone who came out to the Chez Fab "Pizza with a Purpose" fundraiser at Reginelli's on Jefferson on March 7th. Every dollar gets us one step closer to getting the building at 800 N. 19th ready for action!
