The Egan Hotel in downtown Crowley was awarded a $55,000 National Park Service grant from the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development. The grant will fund restoration efforts of the 66 double-hung windows on the second and third floors of the building, located at 306 North Parkerson Avenue. The hotel was one of six projects in the state to receive grant funding through the Historical Revitalization Sub-Grant program administered through the Louisiana Main Street program.
Lazar John Properties is the building’s current owner. Puddles and Lace, L.J. Gielen Enterprises, Southern Security, and Rice City Designs occupy the ground floor while the upper floors remain vacant.
Built in 1912, the Egan Hotel building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 as a contributing resource to the Crowley Historic District.
As this preservation project gets underway, we are very excited to see the historic buildings in our parish get the recognition they deserve! Hopefully this project along with others will attract new businesses and investors, and they will see just what a beautiful place Acadia is!
