CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) -- Civil War enthusiasts likely marvel at the transformation of an historic house in Corinth.
What was once headquarters for war generals would later fall into a state of virtual disrepair.
An effort to restore the 1860's era home is underway.
The Verandah Curlee Home is being restored from the ground up with help from grant money.
The Community Heritage Preservation, Save America's Treasures and Mississippi Landmark grants will help to cover the $560,000 price tag.
"I'm really glad to see progress is finally being made. This has been a long time coming. We've had some grants for a number of years, but it's finally all coming together," Corinth Grant Administrator Dave Huwe said.
Officials hope to have the house in sound condition by the end of the year or early 2014.
