Historic Laveen-SoMo, Part One: Sachs-Webster House

In a series titled, "enDangered Dozen Historic Places List", the Phoenix Historic Preservation Coalition names Laveen's Sachs-Webster House as the #5 most endangered historic place in Phoenix. Here's the write-up about it:

As discussed with reporter Paulina Pineda, it's a little disheartening that this property is endangered. It is, after all, already owned by the city. The city, however, fails to maintain the property -- in part due to its relative isolation, but also because there is a lack of momentum behind restoring the structure. In 2011-2012, there was a lot of discussion about moving forward with a community-based initiative to restore the home and find a use for it, but that hasn't really progressed. What are your ideas?
