PHOTO GALLERY: House considered historic site restored by family

Eric Emanuel works with daughter Hailey Emanuel, 16, and niece Kaitlynn Emanuel, 14, on Thursday at the “Cottage House” at 121 West Blvd. N. In 2004, the house was deemed a historic site by the Historic Preservation Commission. Eric Emanuel’s mother, Lori Muenks, bought the house for the family to restore. The family works on different houses throughout the area, restoring and remodeling them to either rent or sell. With the “Cottage House,” the family started working on it about four to five months ago, restoring both the inside and outside of the home.
