Milton officials will pursue grant money to refurbish and repair the historic Hopewell House, purchased earlier this year for $250,000. Local architect Lew Oliver told City Council members Monday the house needs more in structural work to bring it up to safety specifications. Depending on how extensive the work, project estimates run up to $200,000.
The 3,683-square-foot building sits on 3 acres near the corner of Hopewell and Birmingham roads and is considered one of the oldest structures in Fulton County, dating back to the 1820s or 1830s.
