The Cooley House Foundation will present a walking tour of the Henry Bry Historic District led by architect F. Lestar Martin on Saturday, Oct. 10.
The tour will start at the Cooley House at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25, and space is limited.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Cooley House office at the Masur Museum of Art at 329-2237 or email@example.com.
The Henry Bry Historic District was the original homestead of Henry Bry, who purchased the property in 1814. The original tract was a half mile along the east side of the Ouachita River and two miles deep. It was on this property that Layton Castle was built. The property remained intact until the 1920s, when lots were sold for additional residential development. Today, the houses in this district represent 200 years of architectural styles.
F. Lestar Martin is a practicing architect and retired professor of architecture at Louisiana Tech University. He received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Tulane University and a Masters of Environmental degree from the University of Liverpool, England. He serves on the Louisiana National Review Committee and on the Board of Louisiana Trust.
The Cooley House is a division of the city of Monroe's Department of Community Affairs. Preservation of the building is being orchestrated through the Cooley House Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Major support for the Cooley House has been provided by the Division of Historic Preservation, Office of Cultural Development, Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism and National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior; and by the Twin City Art Foundation.
Additional support comes from the Monroe-West Monroe Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as other corporate sponsors and private individuals.
