Historic Businesses on “The Block” to be Honored in Eagle Market Place Apartments

Mountain Housing Opportunities and Eagle Market Streets Development Corporation are honoring past businesses on “The Block” by naming each of the 62 apartments in the new Eagle Market Place after one of the historic businesses that no longer exists.

Recent attendees at the MHO House Warming Party had the chance to sponsor these rooms as part of the fundraiser. Thirty-two of the apartments were sponsored at the event. However, there are still 30 historic businesses available for sponsorship. For $500, sponsors will be honored with a plaque with their name and the apartment’s name, and will also be listed on a recognition wall in the lobby of Eagle Market Place. Participants can be a single sponsor or share a sponsorship. Single payments can be made or paid over a five month period ($100 per month). Proceeds from the funds raised will go to help build additional historic displays, community meeting areas, a courtyard and other amenities for the affordable downtown apartments.

For a list of the apartments that are still available for sponsorship or for additional information, please contact lisa@mtnhousing.org.
