A new historic and cultural center could be in the city’s future.
On May 14, the Community Redevelopment Agency unanimously agreed to move forward with a state grant application to begin the restoration the Bush House at the corner of South Wilson Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in downtown Crestview. The historical $50,000 grant requires the CRA match the funds.
CRA Director Alisa Burleson brought the grant proposal before the board with the idea that the site could be developed into a historic museum and cultural center. The building currently houses Elder Services of Okaloosa County, which would share the building under the proposed plan.
